As most full-time employees know, weekends are precious. Saturdays and Sundays fly by and the next thing we know, we're back at the office. You only have 48 hours, just enough time to make a drive up to Alabama Hills in Inyo County, CA, for an overnight camping trip. You may give up the luxury of extra sleep or lounging on the couch, but I guarantee the short adventure will rejuvenate you for the next week. Once you arrive you will realize why there have been hundreds of movies filmed here including 1938's 'The Lone Ranger' and 2000's 'Gone in 60 Seconds'.
Who doesn't love a quick getaway? Whether you want to escape with your loved ones or even try it solo, you deserve to take a short break. Take a weekend trip to one of these awesome locations without breaking the budget. If you just want to get out of Los Angeles for a change in scenery, start here!

But if you can bend your budget and make the most of your holidays and weekends, you can create memories of a lifetime.

Here are some ideas to get you on track to actually accomplish your New Year's resolution this year. You can live wealthy just by spending wisely.
Once in a while, taking the long way is more rewarding and fulfilling. If traveling from Los Angeles to San Francisco, most people opt for the direct inland route of I-5 or the scenic route of I-101. However, neither of these routes are nearly as rewarding as taking the road less traveled and driving up the central coast on the beautiful California State Route 1. On my recent trip from LA to San Francisco, I decided to take the extra time to explore the California central coast on Highway 1, the highway that is described by many as the most scenic drive in America.
