Seeing the Heart of America on a Budget
Cue the adventure-of-a-lifetime music and start the camera rolling because Piggy’s and my road trip dreams are now a reality. On a tight budget of PB&J’s, free Wi-Fi and car camping, we’ve driven more than 2,000 miles along the veins of America and continue to see signs of her heart pumping everywhere.
Trying to travel on a budget can seem nearly impossible, but trust me, it’s doable! Affordable travel comes in many layers. Are you on a college-kid budget hoping to see and really experience multiple states with only a couple hundred dollars to spend? Or, are you on a family vacation looking for local restaurants and activities that won’t starve your savings? If so, look no further!
While on this circle-America adventure, I’m hunting to find the wide range of deals, tips and frugal secrets for you, me, and all other money-conscious travelers to use so we can enjoy the many wonders of America without breaking our piggy banks. In the coming posts, I will share tips for finding free Wi-Fi from forests to metropolises; getting the best gas prices across the country; snagging last minute, near-half-price theater tickets at theaters like Minneapolis’s Guthrie and New York’s Broadway; and much more.
