5 CHEAP AND UNCONVENTIONAL TRAVEL IDEAS
Another holiday season is coming up and you are cracking your head on where to go. It’s possible that in as much as you might be planning on a budget, there is no rule that hinders you from maximizing the best of this holiday season with these unconventional ideas!
Here are 5 ideas for a cheap and unusual vacation that will make you look back on the memories every time.
1. Take a road trip in a private car
Instead of taking a commercial bus, why not decide to go on a road trip with your buddies or family. You can hire a driver who knows the road or drives yourself if you are confident in your driving skills. Get a lot of food, drinks, music, and games to make the trip all the more interesting.
Imagine a 4-5 hour trip with a wonderful set of people with non-stop fun, that’s an amazing vacation right there. You can also stop by restaurants or diners and have meals you haven’t had before. Lodge in a motel or a guest house; just add a list of activities that would make your road trip worth it. And don’t forget to keep the memories alive in pictures.
2. Visit a popular travel destination in the next state
It’s funny that 1 out of 30 people you know may never have visited the very next state next to them. Crazy right? What’s even crazier is that you might be that one out of thirty. So for this next vacation idea, pack your bags and take a trip to the next state. Every state has its own tourist attraction, visit such places and experience the life and culture of the people there. Make new friends and do things you probably haven’t done before.
3. Become a local tourist
It’s possible that leaving your state might be too daring or probably something that might seem farfetched, then become a local tourist of your own state. Pick out places that you might never have visited in your city and set up your own vacation schedule, exploring the best of your community.
4. Lodge at a local hotel near a beach
The best part of a vacation is not doing anything and enjoying everything. Lodge at a local hotel near a beach and you’d have the both of the two worlds. Enjoy food that you didn’t have to cook and the coziness of a bed you never have to make (that’s why they have room service). Take a stroll through the beach during the day and enjoy the soft breeze of the ocean and sensational feel of the beach sand under your feet.
5. Visit National parks
There are quite a number of parks littered all over the country and they make excellent spots for a cheap and short vaccation. Enjoy these kinds of time outs with loved ones, friends and family. Have a picnic, play around and let the child in you be free.
