Whether you are looking for a few days of camping and hanging out with nature or are seeking an overnight stay in the city, William Bailey Travel two of many options to explore on a limited budget.
Yellowstone National Park
One of the many places in the United States that offers dramatic views and clear lakes, Yellowstone can be a nirvana for someone seeking to connect with the great outdoors. The park offers over 3,000 square miles of mountains, canyons, lakes and waterfalls. It is also a great place to visit if you want to connect with natures inhabitants as its resident population is buffalo, elk and even a couple of bears.
Making your trip to Yellowstone affordable is easy if you like to camp under the stars. Campgrounds are significantly cheaper than the local hotels and cooking at your site is considerably cheaper than eating at local eateries. Simply stocking a cooler with fresh foods before you hit the road saves you the cost of local snack shops and ensure that you have healthy food to accompany your commune with nature. To keep costs low, skip the summer months as the influx in tourists usually means an influx in hotel and campground prices and head here in spring or fall for the outdoor experience.
Nashville has a reputation for being a great music city where a lot of country singer/songwriters launched their careers. It is often referred to a storyteller’s paradise due to all of the musicians who have walked the streets and played the local bars, expounding the songs of joy, sadness, and drunken escapades. That all being said, it is one of the most down to earth “big cities” you can visit.
Though there are the tourist hotspots like the Grand Ole Opry and Country Music Hall of Fame, there are plenty of other more economically friendly places to visit in town. Hanging out in the growing coffee houses and downtown restaurants can offer just as much opportunity to rub elbows with someone famous as some of the other hot spots. To cut costs, plan a trip in the winter months, as it is the slow season and hotel prices are as low as the get. Also, look into getting the Music City Total Access Pass, which allows you to visit four attractions of your choice for $75. visitmusiccity.com/visitors.
These are but two of the destinations that away you and your family on your budget vacation.
