Destinations / North America

Traveling is hard if you are strapped for cash, but there are plenty of places in the United States that offer budget-friendly fun. If you are looking for a place to getaway where you won’t have to spend too much money, head to San Antonio, Texas.


One of the biggest attractions in San Antonio is The Alamo. Admission into The Alamo is free, but if you choose to take a tour those will add a cost. Explore The Alamo through a guided tour. There are three different tours that all range in time and information. Tours range $7–20. You can wander through the site on your own, which allows you to take your time. You can spend as much time as you like in certain parts and if you aren’t as interested in one part, skip it or just browse.


Another free activity is strolling San Antonio Riverwalk. The Riverwalk is a strip along the river with a bunch of little shops and restaurants. Wander through the shops and look for great souvenirs for your loved ones. If you don’t feel like walking the whole thing, hop on a Riverwalk boat tour. The tours will cost around $20.


End your night with dinner on the river. Head to Saltgrass Steak House and enjoy a nice meal. Since you saved money throughout the day, treat yourself.

Among the myriad concerns the everyday traveler may have when approaching any trip, safety and security are most likely the most important, but protecting yourself from both bodily harm and petty theft can distract you from the real reason for your travel: to escape daily life and immerse yourself in another culture. Therefore, it makes sense to invest in travel accessories that can perform multiple functions, like carrying your gear while also protecting it with state-of-the-art security features.
