Summer Vacations

Nic and I set aside some of our tax return for a simple summer vacation. We are trying to decide where to go, so I thought I would ask you for your ideas and suggestions. We want to go somewhere that is close enough to drive to, somewhere that would provide opportunities to walk/hike and be outside, and obviously it has to be pretty cheap. Yellowstone seems like a perfect fit...but we have been there twice before and we are looking to try somewhere new. Our biggest concern is Sam, so we want to plan a lot of outside time. Have you been on vacation with a baby (she will be 1 when we go)? Have you been on any fun, cheap vacations? If so, I would love to hear your thoughts!!! Thanks.
