Last spring, I wrote about four discount programs worth checking out to save on family-friendly attractions. I re-visited this post last night and while all four programs are still excellent options (e.g., Entertainment Book, Go City Cards, etc.), I wanted to share three free ways to find coupons and discounts on family travel. Take a look:

Head Online: Check out CouponsForFun.com, which breaks out family attractions (e.g., cultural & educational, outdoor & sports, etc.) and then sorts them by state. This makes it easy to find local coupons near your destination. Or, try a coupon aggregator, like Cheap Danny, that has coupons to help you save in all areas of your life, including travel activities.

Look Local: If you’ve settled on a destination, do a web search for local coupon booklets, which can often be free. For example, the Monster Coupon Book is specific to Myrtle Beach (South Carolina) but features 144 pages of coupons for local restaurants and attractions, and again, it’s free. Another is the free Smoky Mountain Coupon Book.

Try AAA. If you belong to the auto club, and many of us do, don’t forget about the many discounts they offer their members on travel and attractions. I always forget to ask for the AAA discount, but not taking advantage of the deals they offer on movie tickets, theme parks, museums and water parks is definitely costing me money.

Have you checked out any other free websites or travel discount programs to help you save money on local attractions, dining and sporting events? Let me know in the comments.
