Hello guys me and some friends have been thinking pretty serious about a roadtrip through America, but I have some questions.
First of all how long would it take? I have heard from a friend in the states that it can take pretty much all in the world depending on what you want to see and do, or 2 days non-stop driving from coast to coast.
What we first wanted to do was to fly to Boston (I am living in Sweden at the moment) and then rent a car and drive to NYC and stay there for a couple of days, the rest of my friends have never been to new york so they wanted to stay there for a while.
After New york we were planing to drive to Los Angeles. When I started looking at the map I soon realized there is so much I want to see! What better way to see America than going to every single state right?
Anyhow how long would this trip be aprox. ?
For a trip like this a rental car doesnt really feel that good of a choice, or am I wrong?
What would be the smartest route? From side to side?
Is this possible over a summer?Say 10 weeks or so.
The cost.. Rental cars are expensive but still I prefer to travel by car instead of train/bus, Is it smarter to just buy a used car?
Bah this post is getting long so ill end it here but I am looking forward to see the responses, this looks like an awesome forum!
Note: Ive never been on a real roadtrip before so maybe this is alittle "big" to start with..
Ps. Sorry for any miss spelled words or bad grammar but I left the states at 7 so my english isnt that good anymore!
