Everyone deserves a vacation with his or her family at least once a year. But, unfortunately due to the recent decline in the economy, more and more families are finding it harder and harder to budget those vacations. Do you desire that vacation, but just feel like you don’t have the funds to support it? Well, you really might be surprised to learn that there are more affordable options than what you might imagine. Also, remember that planning in advance and taking trips with other family members and friends can greatly help reduce costs, as well. With that being said, below you will learn about some of the most affordable places that you can visit in the United States.
The Grand Canyon In Arizona
When it comes to saving money, you will not find anything more affordable than camping. You can literally cut your hotel and food bill in half. If you have never been to the Grand Canyon it is most certainly one attraction that you want to see at least once in your life. This massive sight measures 277 river miles in length and up to 18 miles in width. Along with this, the impressive structure is over a mile deep. People from all over the globe flock to this location each year and it really is no wonder why. You can even save more money by visiting the park on free admission days.
San Antonio, Texas
You have probably heard the saying that everything is bigger in Texas. Well, this statement couldn’t be truer and the three million tourists that flock to this location each year is proof. There is really much more to this area than its storied history. With its Mexican culture and recent expansions you can find plenty of affordable things to do in this city and state. Even if you have filed Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you can afford to travel to San Antonio, thanks to their extensive bus system. Along with this, there is a slew of hotels up and down the Riverwalk District that are extremely budget-friendly.
Las Vegas, California
You probably wouldn’t expect to see Las Vegas on this list, but if you can prevent yourself from getting sucked into the gambling, you can actually turn a Las Vegas visit into a budget-friendly trip. Along with this, most people consider this destination to be a weekend trip, but the truth is if you go during the week you can save a bundle of money. This is especially true, when it comes to hotel accommodations. Plus, Las Vegas really is home to a lot of amazing attractions that are literally free to see like the Bellagio Fountain.
If you truly love the outdoors then a trip to the good old Smokey Mountains will be right up your alley. The entire downtown section of Gatlinburg is accessible by foot and even the nearby trail entrances are accessible for the city. However, if you do get tired, you can always take a cheap and affordable trolley ride, which is much cheaper than a taxi. The lowest rates will be seen during the off seasons of September, March, and April.
