I've been planning, along with two of my friends, to go on a road trip before the end of the year (probably at the beginning of December). We're all pretty poor so we're trying to think of places we could go and only spend around $100 dollars in gas each. We can travel in my car about 2,000 miles with that money. We've considered adding another person to the party to make the gas more affordable, but we probably won't do it unless the money is necessary.
We're content with doing pretty much anything as long as it's cheap and fun (be it the worlds biggest ball of yarn, local bands, fairs, etc.). I want to spend about $60 for on recreation so anything costing $40+ will probably be out of the question. I'm not sure how much cash my friends have, but I'd be willing to bet that they can scrounge together $60 as well. I'd be willing to spot them some cash if there was any specific event going on that you know about. The amount of time we spend doing these things doesn't really matter. We do want to drag it out for as long as possible though.
I live in/near Chattanooga, Tennessee so I feel like a lot of what I wanted to do is out of the question (Las Vegas! :P). Are there any places that you'd recommend within my general mileage? Or is there any advice you'd like to give me about this?
