How To Road Trip California, Be Cheap, And Still Have A Good Time

After finishing my California Road Trip video this summer, I realized I still had a lot of extra footage that I hadn’t used. So I decided to put it to good use in a new video. This video is the result: How to Road Trip California. It’s more of a narrative and slower in style than its predecessor, but I’m hoping you still like it. Here’s a link to the first video if you haven’t seen it:

Many people ask, “How much will it cost to road trip California?” “What are the best places in California to visit?” and “Where is the best food?”. The answers to those questions depend on a lot of different factors. California has so much to offer. To truly experience the whole state could take over a month. And you still wouldn’t see everything. Time, money, and personal preference should all be considered. My main question wasn’t as much “How to Road Trip California” as it was “How can I explore California in one week, with two friends, a camera, and a modest budget?”

I think I answered it.

    1. California is a really big state, even if you live there there’s still a lot to see

    2. Me but it’s still a lot that I haven’t seen yet

  1. thumbs up for spontanious stops on the side of the road. highway one is so great for this.

  2. I don’t feel there were any particularly insightful tips, but I still enjoyed the photography and the absolutely stunning scenery. I live in the UK, but was briefly in Cali last year, and the landscape completely blew me away. Really hope I get to go see a little more some day.

    1. California’s landscape definitely does not disappoint. Thanks for sharing!

    1. yeah if a bear or bigfoot don’t kill you in your sleep

    2. Camp stuff like tent and everything needed to camp is rented?????

    3. Miriam Berman Also not as gross. You can‘t touch anything in those rooms.

    4. But in a Motel6 you can watch the Kardashians on demand 😀
