With more people vacationing close to home, short road trips are becoming more and more popular, even in the face of rising gas prices. AAA Southern New England offers their members some great "Drive Vacation" packages, which include admission tickets, lodging, driving directions, marked maps (with trip irritations like construction zones and congested areas highlighted), tour books, and discount partner listings. There are 30 destinations from which to choose, some as close as the Berkshires (starting at $170 per person for two nights) and the White Mountains (about $590 for two nights for a family of four), others as far away as Montreal (about $90 per person per night) and Pennsylvania Dutch Country (about $450 for two adults for three nights). For more information, call 888-222-4619 or visit aaa.com/travel.
