This is my first time posting on this site, and boy am I glad to see how helpful everyone seems to be. I am a first year teacher, and for the first time in 8 years I will have the whole summer completely OFF to do whatever I please. With these thoughts, I have caught the travel bug BAD!
My boyfriend and I are in the very beginning stages of planning a cross-country trip. All we know right now is that we want it to be 4-6 weeks long, we are willing to camp, and we are starting from Boston. The two goals we have are:
1. To experience as much of the diverse cultures and areas of the USA as possible
2. To see as much of the natural wonders and state/national parks of the USA as possible
Oh, and we're on a VERY tight budget... unfortunately, teaching is not a well-paid career.
Can anyone offer advice on what we can do to reach our two goals? What should we see? Where should we go? What SHOULDN'T we miss? Where and what should we eat? ... And how can we do this as cheaply as possible?
