Once the big day is over and you’re feeling smugly satisfied with your green frugal Christmas, it’s time to head off for that longed-for holiday. However, there's no place like home, especially during the holidays, so why spend so much time, energy, and money traveling when everything you need is right at home? Pretend you’re a tourist and visit your own town. Call the AAA, visit your Chamber of Commerce and visit your local government website. You’ll probably be amazed at the attractions you’ve taken for granted and never visited and you will be helping keep your local economy strong.
