Roadtripping is one of the most affordable ways to travel. Rather than blowing the budget on expensive flights, restaurants, and hotel rooms, you can customize a road trip to your exact needs and resources. Don’t want to spend money on accommodations? Go car camping. Trying to keep food costs down? Bring snacks and drinks. Are high gas prices an issue? Having an amazing adventure doesn’t require you to travel far—find something to explore in your town or state.
