Get out to New England this summer

We all know that airlines and hotels are cutting prices like crazy, but the continued recession can still leave some deals unreachable. If you live anywhere from Boston to Washington, a weekend away won’t require a trip to an airport, restoring some value to the low rates that hotels and local attractions are charging.

Need some ideas? New England Inns & Resorts suggests the following:

Story Land Water Park: North Conway, NH is home to this destination. Spend two nights in a comfy hotel room, pickup breakfast and a ticket per person to Kahuna Laguna (indoor water park) and Story Land Amusement Park – from June 11 to October 11, 2009. The package ranges from $634 to $714.

Hit It Out of the Park Camp and Vacation: At the Lighthouse Inn in West Dennis, MA, you can pick up five nights, five breakfasts, three dinners and daily baseball camp. Two adults and two kids will cost a tad over $2,900, which isn’t bad for a week in West Dennis at this time of year (June 22 to August 3).

Family Fun Package: For just over $1,000, you can nab three nights in a Classic Lodge Room at the Mountain Top Inn & Resort in Chittenden, VT. You’ll also get a hefty breakfast every day, a day of kids camp for each kid you bring, massages for the adults and a pontoon boat ride. But, you need to head up there between the beginning of June and the end of August.
