Aviously

Because, aviously…

One of my more popular travel posts, and the one that is most open and revealing, is my cost breakdowns of my trips, so that you can see if you can do it, or try parts of it.

Here are previous editions from Niagara, Virginia, and San Diego.

Below are Attractions, Hotels, and Gas Costs + Tolls


ATTRACTIONS

Cooperstown, Baseball Hall of Fame = $23

Lake Placid Bobsled Run = $9

Lake Placid Olympic Center = Free

Whiteface Mountain = $12

Montreal Olympic Stadium Tour = $24.70

Montreal Clocktower = Free

Vermont Teddy Bear Factory = $4

Rock of Ages Quarry = $4

Ben & Jerry’s Factory Tour = $4

Springfield Museums = $16.50

GAS AND TOLLS

Gas Costs = $114.23 covering 1114 Miles…which comes down to about 10 cents a mile! (Or 30MPG at $3/Gallon)

When I went to Niagara, I spent a lot of time on the NY Thruway, and going thru Staten Island…these ran the tolls up.

This time, 3 out of my 5 tolls were in NYC, equalling 90% of the cost.

Hugh L. Carey Tunnel = 5.76 * 2 = $11.52

RFK Bridge = $5.76

NYS Thruway, Harriman Toll Plaza = $1.19

NYS Thruway, Amsterdam = $0.95

TOTAL COST OF GAS AND TOLLS = $133.65


TOTAL COSTS

Attractions — $121.20
Hotels — $495.26
Gas and Tolls = $133.65
TOTAL = $750.11

Finally learning what a Quarry is? PRICELESS
