Bringing the family to New York City might just sound like cha-ching from your wallet at record speeds. Not necessarily true. Families, savvy travelers and everyone in between can enjoy New York’s wide variety of neighborhoods on a dime.
With lift tickets topping $100 a day at major ski resorts, a family ski vacation can be an expensive prospect before you even think about hotels and meals — and if you don’t live within driving distance of snow-covered mountains. But you can trim that to fit the budget by looking at some of the smaller family-friendly ski resorts with affordable tickets. All these resorts offer lift tickets at less than $75 a day for adults, with packages and deals that make them even more affordable.

While everyone is scrambling to make dinner reservations and flower deliveries, there are some tasteful celebrations happening around the world you may be missing.
