A huge hello to everyone and hope your all well. My post is quite early I know but my friends and I are thinking about heading over to the USA in march ( St Patricks Day In New York) and working in an Irish Bar in The Hamptons for a few months and then heading across the states for a two month road trip ending in San Diego. Its only an early idea but i want to try and find out the best route to take and which towns, cities, parks and things i should stop and take in. Most posts i have looked at recomend different routes for different people. The route i really want to take is getting in as much of real america as i can along with the cities with the best nightlife. So far from talking to friends of mine Detroit and Chicago are two places i should go for nightlife but other people from america that i have talked to recomed the southern routes. If anyone has any ideas or different routes that i could look i would be very thankfull. Also if there are any other links for route mapping that might come in handy please let me know. So far i have just looked at google earth for mapping. The budget should be around $5500 (around €4000) and does not include renting a camper van / Rv. There will be a minimum of 3 of us going but hopefully around 4 or 5 come next July.
