How to Save on Summer Fun


Looking for a cool place to take the kids without breaking the bank? Balboa Island in Newport Beach is full of family fun activities throughout the spring and summer months. Here are 3 helpful tips for a budget friendly vacation on Balboa Island that the whole family will enjoy! 

Tip #1          
Wait to choose your travel dates. Research the area you plan to visit before you take time off. Vacation sites often run specials during specific months, weeks and days. When it comes to saving on travel, flexibility pays! 

Tip #2
Pick a vacation spot that includes amenities that the whole family will enjoy. Beach access is a great amenity! Spending all day playing in the sand, swimming in the ocean and enjoying the sunshine doesn’t cost a thing. Check on renting bikes for a ride to restaurants and shops. It not only creates a fun family outing but you’ll save on gas or a rental car. 

Tip #3
Visit a website with the area’s activity calendar to find free events taking place on the dates you will be visiting. Outdoor concerts and Art Walks can be enjoyed throughout the year in Balboa Island. Parks with activities for children are planned throughout the spring and summer months. 

Plan the perfect summer vacation at Balboa Island! Enjoy all the natural beauty this town has to offer and stay within budget. After all, it’s not about how much you spend but the fun adventure you have as a family!
