Aviously

Because, aviously…

Let’s go all out, and talk about how much my road trip to Niagara Falls cost me last week.

Below are Attractions + Hotels, Gas Costs, and Tolls


ATTRACTIONS + HOTELS

Sunday
NYCFC vs New England Revolution – Tickets cost me nothing (the joy of being a season ticket holder and making my money back on the year)

Hotel – Country Inn and Suites – Booked with Priceline Express (more on that in the upcoming days) — $62 + $14.59 (taxes+fees) = $76.59

Monday
Corning Museum of Glass — Admission $18 — Glass Blowing/Sandblasting $12 — Souvenirs $30.78 — Total: $60.78

Niagara Adventure Pass – $54CAD — In American terms $48.10 + $1.44 (FTF <Foreign Transaction Fee>) = $49.54

Casino Niagara – I won’t count any money here, because money lost (or in my case gained) at a casino should be held separately from trip costs. Stay smart, and don’t walk into a casino with more money than you are willing to spend!

Hotel – Days Inn By The Falls – Booked in advance via their website – $64.34CAD — In American terms $53.48 + 1.60(FTF) = $55.08

Tuesday
Souvenirs in Canada – American money $24.05 + 0.72 (FTF) = $24.77

TOTAL COST OF ATTRACTIONS AND HOTELS = $266.76

Unfortunately I choose different routes on the way back, and it cost a LOT more.
