We want to take a little mini vacation this summer that is inexpensive. We would have our 2 teenagers with us as well. Any suggestions? Doesn't have to be in Texas as we have flight privileges so we can fly somewhere as well.
Was just in Laredo last weekend, not what I would call a vacation spot, all I saw was Border Patrol Choppers hovering the River and it was hot as all hell.......Montana or New Hampshire where I moved from is more my style
Are those free? Also, any suggestions on where to stay?
Garden of the Gods is free. Seven Falls varies by age of person: http://www.sevenfalls.com/rateshours/
You can also drive to the top of Pikes Peak and have some donuts. http://pikespeak.us.com/Activities/drive-to-the-summit.html
Hit Old Colorado City for some ice cream at the popular creamery...super yummy

Place to stay? Doesn't matter too much since you'll be gone all day... I would stay at any normal hotel chain on the west side off of I 25 near Garden of the gods road or as far south as the broadmoor and that puts you close to everything. I lived the for several years so no hotel stays
