5 ways to save money on a Michigan vacation!
1.) TRAVEL BY TRAIN
Leave the car at home! Most people forget Michigan has a very convenient train system that will take you all over the state of Michigan. And, most of the tickets are within a very affordable range. Forgot about flying across state or worrying about gas and expensive maintenance to get your car ready for a road trip.
Skip the expensive chain hotels and rent out people’s rooms, or entire houses with AirBnB. The AirBnB app and website shows lodging options in your area of people who are willing to rent out their homes for a lot less than renting a hotel.
The website/ App Groupon allows you to experience things and events in your area for sometimes up to 75% or more. They offer discounted prices for almost everything under the sun, from massages to bungee jumping.
4.) GO WITH A GROUP
Try going places with 3-4 friends (or other couples). That way you all can split the price more ways.
5.) BE CREATIVE
The most expensive places to travel are usually the more popular places. Research the area and find places similar to what you had in mind. Try something new and explore there instead for half the price.
