The Great Outdoors on a Budget

Autumn can be the perfect time to plan an outdoor adventure, thanks to comfortable weather, fewer crowds and—yes!—lower prices. We share three simple ways to save money while enjoying the great outdoors.

Not ready to be one with nature by pitching a tent in the woods? An RV may be the way to go. AAA offers RVs for rent and can help you select the right type of vehicle near your hometown. Most options will be more cost-efficient than a hotel stay.

Most RV rentals have a full kitchen, allowing you to save money by having meals “at home.” Another plus, some RVs are pet friendly, saving you money on pet sitters or boarding.

Heading to the Grand Canyon? For an entrance fee of just $35, you can take a single, private, noncommercial vehicle with up to 15 passengers. There are even free entrance park days, including National Public Lands Day (September 23) and Veterans Day (November 11).

If your bucket list includes visiting a few national parks, the America the Beautiful Annual Pass is just $80 (for anyone 16 years and older) and provides 12-month access to more than 2,000 Federal recreation sites. Seniors receive special rates, too.
