The United States of America consists of 50 states, yet whenever someone thinks of a vacation, they think of traveling to a far off island, or maybe even Europe or Asia. Why do we overlook everything our beautiful homeland has to offer? There are 50 states out there, and Americans typically flock to the main few: New York, California, Florida, and Nevada. What about the rest? Well, that’s where I come in. I have made a goal with myself to travel to all 50 states to see what’s up. I have traveled abroad in Europe, and while I loved it and would absolutely go back, or to any other country, I realized that our country is huge and we never get to see any of it! People joke, but Idaho, Oklahoma, and Ohio I’m sure have something awesome to give you a great vacation too!
Since I am a regular person, I live on a budget, but I love to travel. I will always find a way to travel somewhere because I feel that it is imperative to broaden your horizons and see how others live their lives. It is not healthy to live in a bubble and never go anywhere, and yes, you can do it on a tight budget. With helpful travel sites that show you where the great deals are, or sites like Groupon and Living Social, you can easily plan a trip on a very tight budget. Whether you’re traveling by plane, train, or automobile, I’ve done it all, and can point you in the right direction to figure out how to plan a fun, exciting, and relaxing weekend getaway, or week-long vacation.
I’ll share with you how I planned a trip on a budget, and I will also post my cheers and jeers for each city and state. What is it like in general? How do the locals live? Are they “green” and eco-friendly? What are the main tourist attractions? How can you do fun things on a budget, or for free? What’s a healthy restaurant to have a bite to eat? I can tell you that!
So join me as I travel our country and report back to you on what I find. You never know, North Dakota may be a must see state that we’ve never thought of!
