Fun in the USA

Just because you're on a budget, doesn't mean you have to forgo a fun vacation. Instead, plan a road trip for you, your family or your friends to one of these must-see sites across the country.

Fun in the USA

Texas Hill Country

For a memorable vacation there's nothing like exploring the rolling and rugged hills of limestome and granite in Texas Hill Country, Texas. Nearby cities like Austin add a cultural-flair to the otherwise rough-n-tumble terrain.
For more info visit:

New Orleans, LA

There's so much more to New Orleans than Hurricane Katrina. It's home to some of the most influential and ground-breaking jazz artists in the country as well as the annual Mardi Gras festival. Visiting for Cinco De Mayo is another fun option.
For more info visit:

Florida Everglades

This subtropical wetland, located in Florida, stretches from Orlando to Lake Okeechobee in the south and is home to some of the coolest swamp-life in the country (no Shrek, but hundreds of birds, alligators and crocodiles).
For more info visit:

Silverton, CO

Parts of America were founded on mining and nitty-gritty hard labor. So a stop by this historic town (and National Historic Landmark) is a must for anyone wanting to learn more about the country. You'll get to explore old mines, deserted "ghost" towns and small off-the-map villages.
For more info visit:

Black Hills

Wild canyons. Eroded peaks. And amazing wildlife. There's so much to explore in this stunning region of Wyoming-South Dakota (including the famed Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse monuments).
