Places To See That Do Not Break The Bank.

Summer ​Adventures for that person on a budget

Summer is in full swing and all the trips are poping up left and right. Now how do you visit all you want to see and not break the small little bank you have at the moment? Simple, visit some places that are a fun trip, but do not cost a lot to explore their beauty.

Planning trips with friends and family can be stressful enough let alone finding the money for each trip that is planned. With any trip that can be explored it is always ideal to spend less money on food and more on what you want to do and see, the experiences of the trip. Planning ahead for gas and brainstorming long-term is the best way to plan out any vaca on a budget.

Then again, seeing the mountains and feeling the beach are always free, it is traveling to the destination that can be challenging. Traveling with a group can be the best way to save some money and have the most fun.

1. Any beach possible

Any summer calls for some relaxing while hearing the waves and feeling salt in your hair. Maryland has some beaches that are fun to explore with the road trip buddies. Ocean City is a great beach for rides, food, and shopping but when on a budget, browsing the board walk and tanning next to the waves will do just as well. Rehoboth and Bethany beach are also great get away places for the day that are more secluded and private to tan or read a book at ease with the waves right by.

2. Cute little historic towns

Little towns are a great day trip with a date or shopping with your best friend. They are peaceful and small so it is not so overwhelming if you are looking for a great quiet day away. This will take some saving, but it will not be hectic once you are there. Window shopping is also fun do to do and depending on the area you can see some historic sites without paying close to nothing. Edgar Allen Poe's house is a great example of visiting some history. You can see the historic house, church and grave site all in Baltimore. If you want to travel out more you can visit places like Fort McHenry, The B&O railroad museum or Antietam. Annapolis is also a great day trip with a lot of history.

3. State parks

Parks cost maybe $5 maximum and there are endless benefits. Parks offer the space for a cute date or paths to get back in shape and have a run. They offer day trips with your dogs or day trips with your friends. They offer space to tan or lay out and read a good book. They offer adventurous hiking trails or even staying a night and camping out with nature. State parks have the beauty of nature and endless stuff to do when on a zero budget plan. Parks are located all over Maryland and take a simple google search of your area to find one.

Again, with all of these places and destinations the journey getting there is where you will spend most of the money, but once you get there it does not take much to have a fun trip!

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
