Spring break on South Padre Island, Tex. (AP)
Atlanta -- Spring Break is around the corner... If you want to go on a family trip but your budget is limited I've got some deals in several different price ranges.
There are lots of cruise deals out there right now. if you drive from Atlanta to Ft. Lauderdale or Tampa you can take a cruise to the caribbean or mexico for under 250 per person per night.
Carnival has even deeper discounts in the wake of the cruise ship disaster last month.
If your budget is smaller than that head to the beach. Tybee Island, Hilton Head, Destin and St. Simons are all a fairly easy drive from Atlanta. You can save by staying in a Condo over a Hotel and by booking it from Vacation Rentals by Owner, where there are lots of choices so owners may be willing to wheel and deal.
If a staycation is more your speed this year, don't forget about Target Free tuesday's on the second tuesday of the Month at the Atlanta Children's Museum. You can also check out a zoo or museum pass free at your public library, but supplies are very limited and its first come first served.
Also check the daily deal sites like groupon.com , livingsocial.com and halfoffdepot.com for family outings and entertainment deals.
