Sticking to a $100 a Day Food and Drink Budget in Nashville

My husband, Tom and I recently took a 3-day trip to Nashville. It was super last-minute which meant we really had to stick to a budget that wouldn’t break the bank. While our food and drinks budget allowed for a little wiggle room, our aim was $100 per day. Some days were more, some days were less and we ultimately stayed under budget and had an amazing time! Now I’m breaking down for you how you and your partner can plan a foodie tour in Nashville even when sticking to a limited budget!

10 US Travel Destinations (That No One is Talking About.)

I admit it, my favorite past-time is scouring the internet for affordable U.S. travel destinations. Tom and I let our passports lapse last year because we knew the next adventures we wanted to take (after paying off our debt) were the ones located in the good ‘ol U.S. of A. After a visit to the Dominican Republic a few years ago, we felt kind of silly when the tourists there from Ireland and the Netherlands rattled off long lists of the places they were dying to see in the U.S. Here we were with all of these amazing sites and festivals all around us and we weren’t even taking advantage of them. Now, of course, there are big hot spots most people know like LA and NYC…but what about the rest of the country? I’m quickly learning there are a ton of US travel destinations that no one is talking about! So, I’m here to break the cycle and start filling you in on all the places you might be missing out on America.
