10 Trips That Fit Into Your Budget

It's no secret the main issue people have when deciding to travel is money. If we all had an unlimited source of income, it's likely no one would stay in one spot. But alas, our budgets often decide how far we can venture out from our home – and that's why I've come up with a list of 10 inexpensive trips you have no excuse not to take. I've listed these trips from least expensive to most expensive, depending on your cash flow situation. Along with the cheap things to do in these cities, keep in mind that taking public transit, staying at a hostel or Airbnb and cooking your own meals will save you a lot more cash as well.

1. Hop a Greyhound to Vancouver

When people think of Vancouver, affordable often doesn't come to mind - but if you're not owning real estate, the city really is your playground. Not only does it offer breathtaking views of the mountains, multiple beaches and a wide selection of hiking trails, but there are tons of affordable places to eat (think $1 slices of pizza, cheap sushi, etc). Make sure to hop a greyhound instead of taking a flight to save yourself some serious bucks.

2. Cross the border to Seattle, Washington

Seattle is so close to Vancouver that while you're there you have no reason not to check it out. Although it's similar in landscape, it also has some memorable spots that don't cost a dime. Visit the gum wall for your obligatory holiday selfie and pick up some groceries on the way home from Pike Place Market. A CityPASS will also make your travels more affordable.

3. Vacation for cheap in New Orleans, U.S.A

If you're heading to the states, New Orleans is friendly to those travelling on a budget, and their economy could use our support. There are tons of things to do for cheap and even free, like checking out local talent on the streets or attending a crawfish boil. Explore the characteristic city by riding a streetcar or rent a bike for $6 per hour. And because it's always happy hour, you can even find a number of affordable drinks around the city.
