I want to travel around America next year. need help! Watch
Totally disagree though with the food aspect, I thought it was absolutely awful. In the dining car the food was so rubbery, tasteless and overpriced, and served on paper plates (bit weird if you're paying $10/15 for a course)! If you stay in one of the sleeping cabins (like I did) then you have three meals a day for free.....it was free and I still hated it and stopped going to the dining car, so that tells you something! I'm generally easy to please with food, and free stuff usually makes me so happy, but not in this case for sure! Interesting experience in the dining car though since you are sat with other travellers on tables of four - met some really nice and also strange people!
Maybe you had a bad set of meals - often the 'specials' and so on vary. What's more likely though is that we have very different standards. The food on british transport is on the whole absolutely appalling, much worse by comparison. You're lucky to get a soggy pack of sandwiches and a donut!
So, I would love to travel around America next summer for 2-3 months. Starting boston/newyork and heading west coast. Has anyone done this before, if so, how much roughly would it cost, is it safe to do alone, and is their a travel company that specialize in this?
I would love to join you dude. Its my dream to travel America just like the film 'Into the Wild'.
My boyfriend and I travelled up the West Coast and down the East coast last year for just under 3 months, and we spent around £4000 each altogether, including all flights, hotels/motels/hostels (we didn't stay in any dorms so if you do this it may be even cheaper), buses, trains, food, attractions etc. We didn't do any tours, we just did it all ourselves.
We visited LA (staying in Hollywood/downtown/Venice Beach), Las Vegas, Santa Barbara, San Francisco, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Atlantic City, Washington DC, Orlando and Miami.
I'll be happy to give any advice
