The Most Affordable Northern California Road Trip Takes You To 8 Stunning Sites For Under $100

A funny thing happens when you drive north on US HWY 101. Once you pass wine country, the traffic dies off, and you have the highway to yourself as you travel north. A road trip up US HWY 101 will expose you to a ton of beautiful nature and quiet small towns, and you can do it all for less than $100!

As your road trip ends, consider where you want to spend the remainder of your $100. Maybe you stopped at one of the several rock stores along the way to add to your crystal collection. Or perhaps you bought a one-of-a-kind souvenir from a gift shop. If you decide to stay the night, Ferndale– just 20 minutes north, has several beautiful B&Bs. If you want to stay in a chain hotel, just drive north to Eureka, where you’ll find many famous chain hotels.
