Road Trips Don’t Guzzle Money

DETROIT (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The best route to a cheap summer vacation is still the good, ol’ American road trip.

Becky Repp, editor of American Road Magazine, says road trips are still as affordable as ever.

The dirt cheap pit stops along the way for food, lodging, and entertainment are enough to get anyone revved up.

Repp says many offbeat roadside attractions like the World’s Largest Egg in Winlock, Washington, are free for visitors.

Museums along the way are often cheap, such as Historic Auto Attractions in Roscoe, Illinois, which charges folks just $10 to see everything from the Batmobile to the secret service car that was following JFK the day of his assassination.

Repp says lodging is also inexpensive on the road, and clean, local motels usually put folks up for about $50 a night.

The Wigwam Motel, a village made of teepees in Holbrook, Arizona, only charges $58 to stay the night and play.

Additionally, Repp says folks can get tasty, homemade meals just about anywhere on the road for chum change.
