    Basically, my boyfriend and I have become completely hooked on the show Man v Food recently (if you haven't seen it, it's on Dave or most food / travel networks and it is awesome), and we've had this idea that we'd like to visit some of the places Adam visited and try some of the challenges, after I officially finally graduate next summer

    We settled on an East coast tour because although we wanted to go to places like Texas and Colarado, we didn't want to over complicate it. Has anyone ever done an American cross country before? We're a bit bemused as to where to start planning - especially where flights are concerned!

    Any tips?

    That guy has so many health problems, I suggest you AVOID THIS!
    Also his health insurance is amazing. Trust me when I say yours wont even come close.

    Do not do what he does.

    Edit for all the people doubting me; my friends cousin helped film the show and he knows all of this. I am just sharing this with you.
    If you want to do what he does go ahead.

    Film some... it'd be awesome

    I can't think of any specific restaurants in America right now so why not just follow a few of the restaurants that he does

    Good luck

    It is a pretty well known fact that whilst on the road he exercises twice a day and whenever he is not filming he enjoys a healthy diet and regular exercise, which is pretty obvious because if he didn;t he'd be about 50 stone by now.

    Tried this last year but only made it to 9 places :sigh: Every single one was incredible though.

    The problem we found is that a lot of places aren't in city centres so unless you have a car it's quite difficult. But with the sheer amount of places to choose from you should be able to tickle your tastebuds to a ridiculous degree :yum:

    JetBlue for internal flights, great prices and all you can eat snacks are perfect for your trip :teehee:

    Don't know, don't care.

    An occasional food challenge IS NOT going to kill you. Stop being a noob.

    That sounds awesome!

    As for planning the trip itself, considering you're sticking to the east coast i'd say to look for flights to NY as they're usually cheapest.
    Then most places along the east coast are reasonably close to each other (within a few hours) so you could travel by train or bus, for trains try Amtrak, or if you're travelling around the area between New York/New Jersey/Philadelphia, then the NJ transit website would be better for that as Amtrak sticks mostly to major cities, where as NJ transit is more for local area trains.
    As for bus, try Megabus, which I think only runs on the east coast, although I might be wrong. Or Greyhound. I think you can buy passes with these companies that will allow you unlimited travel for a certain period of time.

    Good luck with it!

    Also, Megabus between New York, Boston, Philly, Baltimore, Washington, etc are ridiculously cheap. Got tickets for $8 on most of these trips and the buses are very comfortable and when we went almost completely empty.
