How to start
1. Form Groups of 3 or 4 students. No more, no less
2. Decide on your destination. Find out how many miles you will be
traveling, and figure out the best route to take. (Do you want the
quickest most direct route, or do you want the most scenic route?)
3. Research the hotels in the area you are traveling to, and decide which
one is right for you. You might want to consider things like proximity
to your destination, amenities such as pool, free breakfast, shuttle
service to area attractions, and cost per night.
4. Research the attractions you are going to visit. What sights do you
want to see, how much will each cost, and how many days will you be
5. Research the restaurants in the area. Where do you plan on eating,
and how much will it cost? Remember you have 3 meals per day for 7
days, times 4 people.
6. Allow each person in your group money for souvenirs.
