Travel Tips to Eat Well and Save Money

dinner couponCoupons! Seriously, who looks for coupons when they're traveling? I do and look what I found. Lo Russo's a favorite Italian Restaurant in St. Louis. We're traveling out to St. Louis this weekend to see a play our daughter's directing. Doing a search for the restaurant in order to get the address to plug in my GPS and found this very pleasant surprise of a dinner coupon. It's been several years since we've eaten there and are really looking forward to it. Our daughter spent the last 2 years in Baltimore and so we hadn't been back to St. Louis.

So here's my travel tip for you, check your computer before you go and see what's available by way of specials and discounts. Always click on deals for this hotel to see about a cheaper room rate. Always ask the front desk for dinner coupons (we've had some luck with this too), and plug the restaurant's name in your computer before you dine to see what specials are available.

  5. When I take the family somewhere, and we know well ahead, I got one of those coupon/entertainment books online. Since I get my local one, I can get the other city for 1/2 price or less and we tend to eat out so it really is a great deal!

  15. Coupons are a real bonus when traveling. Discounts can provide a bonus for both tourist and business owner, since the tourist can shop for more if he receives a discount and the owner gets more value out of the purchase. It's a great deal!
