Question 15A Circuit Breaker keeps tripping

i have a circuit breaker that is to my daughters and sister in laws room that keeps tripping. I have replaced the breaker with a new one and unplugged everything on that circuit and no matter what i do it keeps tripping the breaker.

I am trying to avoid paying a huge electrician bill to find out it is something simple i could have done myself. however i am at whits end on what steps to take next

Any help would gratly appreciated.

Does this trip as soon as as you reset it, or does it take a while?

If it trips immediately, then you need to find the problem (whatever is shorted). You can pay someone to find it, or you can do it yourself.

When did it happen the first time? What things were done to the home just before that?
