With lower fuel costs this winter, Americans will find it even cheaper to travel south than last year. For Canadians, the lower price at the pumps offsets the drop in the Canadian dollar, keeping travel costs this winter in line with last year.
Because of the slowing economy I'm sure those of us who travel this winter will enjoy other benefits as well:
Randy and I spent all of last winter (5 months) in the southwest. Here is the exact breakdown of what we saw and how much we spent.
And here are some of the photos and blog entries all from that same trip:
Trip from Ontario to Texas
Texas Hill Country
Fun in San Antonio
White Sands and Chiricahua National Monuments
Belle Starr's Silverado Ranch
Escalante National Monument
We saw all that and much more in 5 months on very little money.
So pull out your maps of the American Southwest and sharpen your pencil. Maybe you CAN afford to travel to the sunny southern states this winter, after all!
