Has anyone travelling in North America at all? I am going in June till September this summer and I would appreciate some advice on how to get about relatively cheaply.


I have booked return flights to Newark as I am teaching at a summer camp in Pennsylvania until mid august BUT I want to go and explore some of America before I head back.


Any ideas what the cheapest form of travel might be if i get to texas for example and need to head back to Newark?


Also has anyone spent a month travelling in N america before? any recommendations on places to visit/how to get to those places?


THANK YOU IN ADVANCE

Yes I travelled USA for 7 weeks which you can read my q&a thread about it here. http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=2517808

the cheapest form of travelling is definitely coach. Greyhound is a go-to coach service but shop around as it's not always the cheapest.

in terms of places to go in depends on what you like. Music, shopping, beaches, history, partying etc?

any more questions just ask.

Hello. I'm American, so maybe I can help some. As someone else said, greyhound works well. The train system here is called Amtrak, but it isn't all over like it is in the UK.

Any idea where you'd like to go?

There is the cheapest then the best or most convenience. If you want to go directly from Newark to Texas, I suggest flying quickest and easiest way. Where in Texas do you wanna to Dallas/Ft Worth, San Antonio, Austin, Houston??

Check out airlines such as Jetblue and Southwest

Most of my travelling in the USA has been by road and a little bit of train. Maybe an option would be to buy a cheap car when your there? The driving is easy and fuel is cheap. Other than that,,greyhound,train if its available (not much in USA), or cheap flights if you can get them. The US is a great country. So much diverse from town to town,city to city,state to state, The people are great to chat to and generally very conservative and friendly...have a great time.Wish i was coming too..

I returned from a road trip through California, Arizona, Utah and Nevada a few weeks ago. We rented a car and it was cheap for us - however, it would be more expensive if you're under 25. If there is more of you, it might be worth to look into. We never bothered booking hotels, just drove up to a closest motel at 10 pm and got a room, but again, that's if you're traveling by car.
Also, AirTran, JetBlue, Southwest, Allegiant Air are pretty cheap. Unfortunately, the US is not cool enough to have a low-low-low-cost like RyanAir.
