Find Cheaper Gas, Cheaper Alternate Fuel, Cheaper Parking and Free Kid's Restaurant Meals This Vacation

Travel isn't cheap, but if you can shop and compare, it could be a bit cheaper.  Bob Evans is touting its free kid's meals in July of 2013 (if you are paying for an adult meal, from 2 till closing, on weekdays).  However, other restaurants regularly offer free children's meals under certain circumstances, often at lower-demand days, like weekdays.  If you want to find them, try the website Kids Eat Free, which has a state-by-state breakdown of places with such offers.

If you are on the move, and want to find cheap gas wherever you go, try Gas Buddy, which is a website and has a  mobile app, too.  If your car runs on something other than unleaded gas, AltFuels will help you find (and price) alternatives around the country as you travel.    And if you want to park somewhere where parking isn't free, try Parkopedia to compare the price of potential parking spaces.  And happy travels.
