Frugal Honeymoon for Tony Parker & Eva Longoria?

How do you top off a lavish wedding in a 17th century French castle? After spending a small fortune on a luxe wedding, Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria and Tony Parker (San Antonio Spurs basketball player) apparently spent far less on their low-key honeymoon, according to People magazine.

Ping-pong, rounds of Yahtzee and simple candle-lit dinners filled their post-wedding agenda, according to news reports.

Here's my list of frugal vacation activities:

1) Picnics

2) Enjoy free entertainment offered in the resort

3) Use the complimentary spa and pool area.

4) Find the resort's lending library for free books, magazines and board games.

5) Go to a local supermarket. In Saint Maarten, my husband and I got a local taste of the Caribbean by going to a down-home market where area residents shopped. In this un-glitzy location, we sampled another culture.

6) Find local museums.
