We all know that hotels can be expensive, especially if you're going to be traveling for awhile at a time. I've found a great alternative to hotels, something usually free, but sometimes $5-8 a night- campsites! I use the map feature freecampsites.net to locate sites in the area I want to go, and on the way as well if it's a road trip. The website tells you what accommodations the site has- such as bathrooms, showers, outlets, etc., as well as the price. It also shows reviews by other people who have gone there, if applicable. For someone traveling on a budget, this could make their entire trip possible.
