I love VRBO.com. I always check the calendars of units and see which ones are pretty open and then negotiate with them. They would rather have something instead of nothing. If you are in Montgomery, I would suggest Mentone, AL for the mountains (it's a good change from going to Gatlinburg), and for the beach- Destin, FL or Gulf Shores, AL..my two favorite places! Any more questions, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be glad to answer any questions. We actually just got back from Savannah, GA over the 4th of July and got a great deal on VRBO.com. Good luck!
