I love road trips. I love driving and seeing the world along the way to my next destination. I have seen some amazing scenery and parts of the country you won’t see if you fly to your destination. You can go to more places on a road trip. It can be cheaper to get there especially if you have more than one person going on the trip. I usually do! If you don’t have a lot of funds for travel, road trips can be very budget friendly.

Sometimes the best ideas are last minute – but can you find the perfect spot for your perfect adventure? Yes, you can!
Many places take reservations for camping sites so getting a last-minute spot can be challenging. But a spontaneous camping trip is possible. Find out how.
