As reported by Charis Atlas Heelan, on Frommers.com  March 18, 2008:   

" As spring break is upon us, the family travel season moves into high gear. With the value sliding of the U.S. dollar, many families may be re-thinking a vacation abroad and concentrating on destinations closer to home, or at the very least, traveling to countries where the dollar still has some clout. Here are a few options for saving those hard-earned dollars while traveling with your family this spring and summer.......

Although you would generally think that staying at Bed and Breakfasts was the pursuit of those seeking romance or a quiet getaway for two, Bed and Breakfasts can also be surprisingly family friendly. The BnB Finder website  offers links to hundreds of bed and breakfast properties that welcome children and you can search for properties by state. They also offer tips for family-based get-aways staying a bed and breakfasts with additional activities.

For example, a family farm vacation at Weatherbury Farm (tel. 724/587-3763; www.weatherburyfarm.com) in Avella, Pennsylvania combines bed and breakfast accommodation with life on a working farm and the chance to get your kids actively involved.  Animals on the property include goats, rabbits, ducks, chickens, geese, sheep and cows. Families staying for two nights or more are invited to participate in the "Official Weatherbury Farm Kid" program. Younger children will do chores and complete a picture worksheet while older children will have fun doing chores and learning with a "Farm Workbook." Children who complete the program will be awarded an "Official Weatherbury Farm Kid" certificate. Accommodation with breakfast daily (and plenty of old-fashioned hard work on the farm) is priced from $137 per night (for a minimum of two nights) for a family of four staying in one room, or $181 staying in a suite. There are discounts of up to 20% for longer stays."
