When you’re traveling by RV, you cover a lot of ground — and you can spend a lot of money. Who doesn’t want a discount now and then to ease the wallet? Nearly all area attractions at one time or another offer either discounts, free days, two-for-ones or other incentives. How can you take advantage of them?
Always check at every tourist bureau and visitor information location you find and ask about your specific interests — as well as some things you may not have an interest in at present yet you may find interesting and entertaining.
The city of San Diego, for instance, sells a Balboa Park Museum Pass that is good for a week and offers admission to 17 museums in the park. With this pass you could visit museums that you might not otherwise choose to, and surprise yourself with the enjoyment of it.
Many restaurants offer early diner, senior, or two-for-one discounts. Ask the attendant for coupons. If an attraction offers a deal, the tourist bureaus and visitor centers will have the information — and the discount coupons — so these are must-stops. Check for senior and off-season discounts, as well.
