Actually, I have found that some of the best places to travel when I am on a tight budget are places within a few short miles of my home. No matter where we live, there is always something nearby that we've never seen, but should. I am from Bucks County, PA (which is where Washington crossed the Delaware into Trenton, NJ in 1776). My my mother, grandmother, and many generations before us were born, raised, and lived there as well. Gram even lived in Philly for a time, but she lived for 90 years without ever going to see Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, Betsy Ross' house, etc.
