“My husband is in the military and stationed on the east coast, but all of our families and friends are in California. We got married near home and had to move my car (and all my stuff!) to the south, so a cross-country road trip was actually our honeymoon! We didn’t make any reservations in advance anywhere, so every stop of the trip was spontaneous and so much fun! We also read reviews of cool, cheap dives near each landmark, and took advantage of each hotel’s continental breakfast. We spent most of our money on gas, food, and hotels but we saved a lot more money than if we’d taken our honeymoon somewhere exotic.”
