I was hoping to draw on some "local" knowledge to try and put my daily budget together for our trip next month.
Coming from Scandinavia, we have previously just thought that our outlay on gas and food will be "cheaper than home", but I'm trying to put together a list of normal daily expenses for a family of 4, and don't really know the average US prices.
Can anyone give me a pointer as to if these prices are way under/over estimated?
Gas average $20 daily (2500 miles in a Grand caravan at 21 mpg average)
Breakfast/Lunches - $30 for breakfast,sandwiches, water bought in supermarkets
Dinner and other food - $120 per day including tips
Hotel $130 per night (family rooms)
Our trip takes us from SFO to LA, then Sedona, Grand Canyon, Vegas, Yosemite and back to SFO over 22 days.
I know that we will have to allow extra for hotels in San Francisco and LA, and also extra for trips like Universal, and park fees, but anyone know if there is anything way off in my guesstimates so far?
Thanks in advance
