If you’re traveling around the US on a budget, you’ll be pleased to know that the magic of America is still within reach. Some of the world’s most awe-inspiring national parks are available to all and epic road trips allow you to see the changing landscapes without the need for expensive flights. Accommodation typically burns the biggest hole in your travel budget, but mixing vacation rentals and camping with traditional hotels is a way to keep costs down.

    Mealtimes in America are always special, even on a small budget, thanks to the typically huge portions and variety of inexpensive regional cuisine. For a convenient snack, make use of the nation’s love of street food – typically food trucks – serving anything from Mexican tacos to Asian rice bowls.
