Myself and my partner are travelling to the USA from the UK on March 10th and we leave the USA on June 2nd.
Our first stop is in New York and we are planning to travel down the east coast and through into the south (Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana) then into Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, California, Oregon and finishing in Seattle.
We are in the USA for 84 days and already have 34 days accommodation paid for (NYC, Philadelphia, D.C, Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Seattle). Our hire car is also paid for and we will be driving an economy car (Chevrolet Spark or similar).
We are currently trying to budget how much we will need in spending/gas/accommodation money for our roadtrip. We don't think we will be travelling more than 10,000 miles and we only need accommodation for 50 days. We will have a tent so camping is an option. We are pretty used to being on a budget and would like to stay in motels/hostels/airbnb.
Does anyone have a rough idea on how much we would need per day for general costs such as food and entertainment and gas and how much an average stay at a motel outside of a major city is?
I believe our hire car does 32mpg and we are looking to do a lot of sightseeing involving hiking and outdoor activities (not too fussed about spending a lot of money for entertainment).
Any help would be great! Thanks!
