When you’ve made up your mind to see more of America, you know that you’ve got a lot of ground to cover! It simply isn’t practical to run across the States like Forest Gump. And cycling won’t get you very far if you only have a week’s vacation. So what are your favorite choices when it comes to crossing the country?
There is the possibility of taking buses all the way. There are a few different companies that offer national travel. But why sit with strangers when you can take along your whole family and a few friends too? Chartering your own bus means you can fit everyone you love on board, and make your vacation incredibly memorable. According to GOGO Charters, it’s ideal for bachelorette parties too. You can head to Vegas! A great road trip without the hassle of driving.
Taking the train from city to city can be another interesting way to travel across the country. The view isn’t always as great as from the road, though. It’s not always as cheap as you might like either. But you won’t have to do any driving, and seating is usually just about comfortable enough to get a little nap in. One of the best things about train travel is the stations are usually right in the heart of the city. That means you can arrive refreshed and ready to party the night away in each city stop.
You can hire a car or even an RV and take off across the country. It’s a great way to see more of the United States while you travel. You can take any route you like, and stop as often as you need to. But it is tough going when you’re doing the driving. And you can get stuck in traffic from time to time. Perhaps the toughest part is finding somewhere to park when you arrive in the city. But for all the freedom of travel, perhaps a road trip is ideal.
Of all the planes, trains and automobiles you can choose, flying has to be the best option when you’re in a hurry. If your vacation is only short, you may need to use a plane to get across the country and have enough time to enjoy it. Internal flights are pretty quick as well. But they don’t come cheap, and you still need to go through a lot of security checks. Still, it will get you within reach of your favorite cities with just a few hours.
Of course, you can take your time to meander across the country. If you’re fit, why not cycle? You could even sail some of the way if you’re staying close to the coast. It’s best to pick three or four things you really want to see on vacation and plan your travel around that. There are plenty of ways to get there, after all. If you want the city, take the bus or the train. If you’re short on time, fly there. What will you choose?
