I have just decided to make a road trip through the United States for 8-10 weeks in July/August/September 2017. I have been to the States several times before so I know the country quit well already but this time I would like to visit all the cities that are still on my bucket list. I am from the Netherlands so this might be my one and only chance to see all the beautiful things the States has to offer :-).
There are some cities/places of interest I definitely want to see:
- Seattle --> + Vancouver
- San Francisco --> Route 101
- Mount Rushmore
- New Orleans
Because my father owns a house in Florida, I have two options. Return flight from Amsterdam to Florida and several inbound flights from Florida to the rest of the States or I could really make a road trip. Starting at the west coast and traveling to the east coast and then finish my trip in Florida.
Does someone have any idea which would be more affordable? Because I am traveling alone I'm also thinking about traveling by train. I know that the parking costs in bigger cities are quit high and because I would also like to meet some new people, traveling by train might be a good option.
Are there some things you could recommend to me? In case of cities, places of interest, traveling, accommodation etc? All travel suggestions are welcome.
By the way I have already been to New York, Boston, Washington D.C, Los Angeles en Las Vegas so that is why these cities aren't listed above.
Thank you all for your suggestions.
