Ideas for an Affordable 4th of July Road Trip

Posted on 06/21/2010

Feeling the need for some independence this 4th of July? Find it on the open road with a summer car trip. Here are some ideas for great destinations and easy tips that will make it an affordable and fun 4th of July road trip.

Prep Your Car - Avoid spending money you don’t have to when it comes to your car. In addition to your 4th of July supplies, make sure to toss in some jumper cables in case your car battery dies. Double check the air pressure in your tires since this can impact your gas mileage, and keep a few gallon jugs of water in the trunk, just in case.

Make it a Family Affair - Instead of heading to a destination where you don’t know anyone, make the 4th of July family focused. Drive to a relative’s home in a destination you enjoy exploring so you can spend quality time with others rather than spending too much money.

Find Popular Free Events - All over America communities are celebrating the 4th of July with free events. Some festivities to check out include Boston Harborfest, Chicago’s Navy Pier, and Big Bay Boom in San Diego. Take in concerts, parades and, of course, fireworks all for free.

Save Money on RV Rental - Load up the family in an RV for a 4th of July road trip to remember. Traveling by RV let’s you avoid putting the mileage on your own vehicle and gives you a place to sleep, too. Save money on RV rental by comparing costs with Just plug in your pickup location, the dates of your road trip and where you plan to drop off your RV. Fetch will give you the available options and costs. Check out the rental deals from Cruise America, too. They’ve got a variety of sales and discounts depending on where you’re driving.

Camp for Free - Save money on accommodations by throwing a tent in the trunk before hitting the road. Find free (or nearly free) campgrounds at Search by location and narrow your results by including your preferences for scenery, distance from a paved road and noise level. There’s no better way to celebrate freedom than to cut loose at a campground.

The loans seem to be useful for guys, which would like to organize their career. By the way, this is not very hard to receive a auto loan.
