What You Could Get in Chicago for $10 – Anything Less than 10 Dollars in the Windy City

Back when I was a kid, I think long before I knew about New York or any other cities in America, there was one city in the USA that I was most familiar with: Chicago. Yes, the city that we’re going to cover on this week’s $10 series!

Apart from the hype of Space Jam and the popularity of Michael Jordan in his prime, the city was also mentioned in one of my favorite Indonesian comedies. To be fair, if the city wasn’t the first city in America that I got to know by name, I don’t know what possibly would be.

Fast forward to today, one of my best friends actually resides there ever since he decided to leave Indonesia around 10 years ago. And now, thanks to Valentina on Valentina’s Destinations, we’re going to see how far $10 USD is in the most populous city in the state of Illinois.

What You Could Get in Nashville for $10 – What’s More to Nashville than Country Music?

Howdy, everyone? 😀

And that’s definitely the hint for this week’s $10 series… And yes, for the love of country music, this week we’re heading over to Nashville, Tennessee. The city is the home of Grand Ole Opry, and probably the first city on my bucket list that is located in the United States of America.

Why? Because I’m an Indonesian girl who would choose CMA over Grammy, and I grew up with Martina McBride and passed my adolescence with Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert. That’s why. 😛

But, just like me… You’d probably wonder, what is Nashville other than anything related to the music?

And that’s why, this week we have Joshua from Vacation Lion to outline what other things in the city that are worth to spend your Hamilton bill. Are you ready for this? 🙂

Hi everyone! 🙂

Apparently, this week we’re still covering an area in the northern part of America. And this time, we’re flying to Portland in Oregon to see how far you could get with your $10 USD banknote around there.

So in this opportunity, I’m excited to have John Paul from The Hangry Backpacker on this week’s series to see what you could do within the budget. So, is Portland expensive to travel around? Check it out then!

What You Could Get in New Orleans for $10 – You Could Get So Much in One of the Most Budget-Friendly Cities in the USA!

As an Indonesian who grew up during the rise of Britney Spears, it’s fair to say that I’m thrilled when I got in touch with Rachel from East to West RMS for the series.

I mean, despite the fact that I don’t know much about America in geography, but I for sure am familiar with Louisiana as that’s where Britney grew up. 😛

So when Rachel said she could cover New Orleans for the series and talk about how far $10 could get in the city, I definitely said yes!

The city was once severely affected by Hurricane Katrina in the past few years, but the major redevelopment in the area seems to just make the city a great option to visit if you’re planning to go to the southeastern part of the USA.

Then, what could you get in New Orleans for $10 USD?!
