Traveling to Nashville can be one of the most exciting trips that any person can ever take. Because of its history, not only in terms of its relation to the United States but also in the music industry, this beautiful Tennessee city has played an incredible role in America.
However, like any other city you would visit when you are on a strict budget, it can remove a lot of your enjoyment as you get to the city. No need to fret though. If you’re looking how to have a great time in the city, here are five tips for traveling on a small budget and Nashville.
Don’t Be Afraid to Connect – something that not many people realize is that the more flights you are willing to connect through the lower price you will pay. This may cost you a little time, maybe even 10 or 12 hours, but it should save you at least 20% and your overall ticket and you’ll get to see a lot of cities you may have never seen before. Well, at least their airports.
Plan Your Meals in Advance – one of the biggest mistakes that people make is that they just go with the flow in terms of what they will eat. They assume though, cross someplace that won’t cost too much money, but soon find that they are so hungry looking for a good place that they spend 25% or 35% more than they should have. Before you even arrive in Nashville spend some time on the Internet looking for restaurants around places you want to see so you can find establishments that meet your budget.
Cut Your Meal in Half – here is a great way to not only save in your food costs but also to reduce that stubborn weight you been trying to get rid of. When you arrive at restaurants have the waiter or waitress brings you a box right away after your meal arrives in place half of it in the box. This will not only reduce the amount of food that you eat, but will give you your meal for later on back at the hotel.
Look for Free Places to Visit – Nashville has a number of amazing sites and statues that you can visit and spend absolutely nothing to see. You can use the local Nashville transportation to be able to get around to virtually any place you would like, which can help to reduce your costs so you don’t necessarily need to get a rental car.
Hire a Service When Appropriate – hiring a Nashville limo service to get you around may sound like a crazy idea but, depending upon the event or location you are trying to reach, it may actually be to your advantage. If you are going to spend $30 for a rental car, $15 for parking, and $10 in gas, you will likely find that hiring a limo service would cost less than this total and would give you a much more comfortable and enjoyable ride to and from the location.
