No matter where you're planning to go,on vacation read this before you book:

1. Max out your rewards
You will likely use your credit card for some or all of your vacation expenses, so go to CardHub.com to compare cards and apply for the one that gives you the best rewards on travel deals. 

2. Visit Groupon
Even if you don't book your trip through Groupon.com, the site is a great place to bargain-hunt for activities. "I once signed up for Groupon in Maui before a trip and purchased an underwater 'Snuba' adventure that combined snorkeling and scuba diving at 70% off the original price," says Lissa Poirot, editor of the family travel planning site FamilyVacationCritic.com. 

3. Snag old-fashioned coupons
Official state welcome centers, which are often located on highways as you enter a new state, offer racks full of coupon booklets that contain great discounts on entrance fees for local attractions, restaurants, motels and more. . 

Theme & Amusement Parks
Between the cost of admission and the price of food, drinks and extras, these venues can be money pits unless you plan ahead.

4. Clip cyber coupons
Visit RetailMeNot.com, which is not just for shopping. "It also serves as a deal aggregator for tours and attractions like amusement parks," says Poirot. Go to the "Browse by Category" tab and click on "Travel" to explore the savings, or search specific destinations.

5. Find deeply discounted tickets
Heading to Orlando, FL, the amusement park capital of the country? UndercoverTourist.com offers breaks on 49 Orlando-area attractions.

6. Pick a BYO park
They may not advertise it, but many parks allow you to bring in your own food, which can save you hundreds. Check the park's policy before visiting.

7. Team up with your neighbors
There's savings in numbers: The roller-coaster lovers' mecca Cedar Point in Sandusky, OH, for example, offers $37 tickets to members of groups of 15 or more. That's a savings of $17.99 per person off the individual price at the gate. See if you can team up for a group rate at the park of your choice.

8. Stick to local attractions
Choosing a park close to where you live will reduce your travel costs, and many smaller regional parks can be surprisingly wallet-friendly. For instance: Quassy Amusement Park in Middlebury, CT, touts "Big thrills for a small price" every Friday evening when rides, hot dogs and sodas go for just 50¢ each. On Saturday nights the historic park offers a $35 carload rate, which includes access to all rides for up to 10 people per vehicle until 10 P.M. 

National Parks
With reasonable admission prices and the option of affordable camping, national parks can be an economical outdoorsy getaway.

9. Buy an annual pass
The entrance fee at the superstar parks (Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Yellowstone) is $20 to $25 per car. Visit more than three of them in a year, and an America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass ($80; Store.USGS.gov/Pass/Index.html) pays for itself. Even if you're not trekking to the biggies, the pass is good at more than 2,000 national parks and forestry service sites. And if you're in the military, you and your family may qualify for a free pass!

10. Stay smart                                                                                                                                                                                        Some hotels and lodges near national parks provide park entrance passes for guests. Teton Springs Lodge & Spa in Victor, ID, for example, offers a two-night package with free entrance to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks (a $25 value per vehicle, per day). Ask before you book.

11. Mark your calendar
Entrance fees will be waived on various public lands for 13 specific days in 2013, including August 25 (the birthday of the National Park Service). Check out NPS.gov to find out the days the National Parks are free. 

Educational and Cultural Trips 
Sure, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Boston are famous cities for culture. However, if you head to smaller places like San Antonio or Little Rock, AR, you'll find the arts are flourishing but tickets, room rates and menus are less pricey. Indianapolis, for example, boasts a newly opened car-free Cultural Trail, with stops at the NCAA Hall of Champions Museum, the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, and the Rhythm! Discovery Center, where kids can bang away on dozens of percussion instruments in special soundproof rooms. All of these stops on the trail cost $10 or less for adults and $6 or less for kids.

12. Become a member 
"You can often use your local memberships for discounted or free entry to museums across the country," says Mary Solio, creator of the budget family travel blog TheWorldIsABook.com. Visit ChildrensMuseums.org, and ASTC.org for a list of museums and science centers that offer these reduced rates.

13. See what's free 
Check out MrFreeStuff.com to plan your itinerary. The site lists events that are always free, as well as the specific days and times when cultural attractions in 20 cities across the U.S. offer no-cost admission.

There's nothing wrong with a hamburger or hot dog right off the grill, but why stop there? There are so many other things you could throw on the fire that you may not have even thought of.

According to CoEd Magazine, here are some alternatives to grill (besides burgers and hot dogs):

  • Oysters. It's pretty easy. Just throw the oysters on the grill, and when the shells open up, they're done. 
     
  • Grilled cheese and other sandwiches. No, really. 
     
  • Pizza. What? Really? Grilling the pizza provides a similar taste to a brick oven pizza. 
     
  • Beer Can Chicken. Put a beer can inside a whole chicken and let the cookin' begin. 
     
  • Fruit. If you haven't cooked fruit on the grill, than you're missing out on one of the greatest things ever.
  •  
  • Veggies. Put them on a skewer as a shish-ka-bob and brush them with a marinade

         Fish. Better on the grill because the smell stays out of the house

The Humane Society wants to remind people that pets can become distressed by the additional noise and commotion involved with the Independence Day holiday. Here are some things to remember when protecting your pet this Fourth of July:

Leave your pet at home – Fireworks displays can be disorienting and frightening to pets.
    
Create a home sanctuary – Leave your pet in an area of your home where he or she is safe, comfortable and sheltered from any outside noise and lights.
    
Pet-proof your home – When scared, some animals can become destructive, so be sure to remove anything that can become damaged or might harm your pet if chewed.
    
Keep them inside – Never leave pets outside and unattended. Even in a fenced in yard, panic can lead a pet to escape and get lost, or become injured while trying to seek refuge.
    
Identification – Make sure that your pet is always wearing identification. In the unfortunate event that your pet gets lost, an updated identification tag greatly increases your chances of being reunited.

According to a survey, here are some facts about Facebook that employers say can help or rule out a candidate for a job from Facebook info. These things hurt your chances:


* 50% found a job applicant had posted provocative or inappropriate photos or information.

* 48% said they were turned off by a candidate who posted information about drinking or drug use.

* 24% found information that showed the candidate had lied about qualifications.

* 33% of hiring managers passed over an applicant who badmouthed a previous employer online.

* 28% didn't hire someone because of derogatory comments about gender, etc....

But this type of info can help:

* 50% of hiring managers said they were more likely to hire a candidate whose social network showed a well-rounded person with a wide range of interests

* 46% of managers liked applicants whose posts or pictures showed a creative side.
