Take an Affordable Spring Break Road Trip

Spring Break Beach

A spring break road trip is a great way to escape the daily grind, but it can also take a toll on your wallet depending on where you go. Luckily, there are a number of affordable spring break destinations, especially if you’re willing to take a road trip. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing beach setting or simply a change of pace, there’s an ideal spring break location for everyone.

Travel Channel recommends taking a trip to Washington D.C. While most people don’t think of the U.S. capital as a spring break destination, it has tons of history, lots of free museums and galleries, and iconic landmarks. Plus, there are a number of great places to stop along the route from Florida to D.C.

Looking for something a little closer to home? Visit Sanibel Island, Florida. It’s best to visit this area between February and April, however, if you want to find shells along the shore. Plus, the sandy beaches provide a comfortable place to relax, and it’s less crowded than other beaches in the state during spring break.

Lastly, New Orleans, Louisiana is another great, budget-friendly destination. The city boasts a dynamic nightlife scene, Southern comfort food, and a historic French quarter. Plus, if you avoid airfare and opt for road-tripping, you can save even more money.

Valentine’s Day On A Budget

Valentine's Day

Want to show your loved one you care without breaking the bank? Here are some ideas on how to have a meaningful Valentine’s Day on a budget.

  • Dress up to eat in: Rather than spending tons of money eating out, spend the time to make a thoughtful, home-cooked meal. To make it extra special, dress up in your finest clothes, light some candles, and swear off phones and technology for the evening.
  • Make a homemade card or gift: Making something for the person you love says so much more than simply buying them something you think they’d like. Spend the time to write a thoughtful card or make a thoughtful gift.
  • Make a playlist together for just the two of you: This activity makes for hours of fun and reminiscing with your loved one as you decide on your favorite songs as a couple and ones that express how you feel about one another. What’s more, this is the gift that keeps giving – you can enjoy the playlist year-round.
  • Pick out a few favorite memories to recreate: Maybe you both remember watching a certain movie on one of your first dates together, or you both love a particular hiking trail. Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to re-watch one of your favorite movies or spend some time together outdoors.
