Whether you are doing the traditional tourist thing and going on tours and checking out the sights, or spending the day on a hike or at the beach, this tip can not only save you calories, it can save you money! Packing a small lunch or filling a cooler is a great way to avoid chowing down on food cart hot dogs, allowing you to create nutritionally balanced meals that will keep you energized and satisfied. Besides, who doesn't like a picnic?
Planning ahead is a real diet saver! Before you head out on vacation, do a little research on the areas in which you will be. Look at the local restaurants, examine their menus. Plan which places you will go, and on what day, so you aren't left wandering the streets at dinner hour, starving and ready to devour whatever is put in front of you!
It is important to bring water with you when you head out for the day. Staying hydrated will help keep your metabolism humming but it can also prevent you from overeating. Dehydration often masks itself as hunger, leading you to eat when you don't really need to. Besides, if you are spending your time in a sunny, warm climate, water will help you avoid the vacation ruining side effects of heat exhaustion!
Sitting for long periods of time in the car doesn't mean you can't exercise a little! Many of the exercises you do while sitting at your desk can be adapted for the car! Try doing a side twist or calf raises. Try basic contractions, like breathing in through your nose (but only letting your lungs expand half way) and exhaling forcefully through pursed lips, drawing your navel to your spine, contracting your abs and holding for a few seconds. These simple little moves can make a big difference!

This is a no-brainer. If you have easy access to gym facilities, you'll be more likely to use those facilities. Don't make working out more difficult than it needs to be.
Vacationing at the beach? Take your regular yoga practice to the sand. The change in scenery will keep you motivated and the change in work surface will challenge your body in incredible ways! Even a long walk in the woods or through a beautiful park will inspire you to keep on going!
If your vacation is a family oriented trip, find ways to get moving together. Bring a frisbee, set up a volleyball net on the beach, go for a hike, plan swimming races in the lake. Rent a kayak. If you put your mind to it, you can find a whole bunch of ways to make moving your body an enjoyable, bonding experience.
