USA Travel Tips and Route Ideas
The distances in America are great making the driving time, especially in the popular destinations, fairly long. During the high season there is also likely to be more traffic making it take even longer. If you have just one driver with you, make sure you don’t generally cover more than 300 miles a day and, with two drivers – no more than 500 miles a day. When travelling with children, remember to have something to entertain them, a portable DVD player can be a life saver during the long drives.
US 50 – Coast to Coast trip
One of the longest and the most famous US car routes goes through 12 states, from Maryland on the Atlantic Coast to California on the Pacific coast. The distance is around 3000 miles (almost 5000 km); so you will need a minimum of 3 weeks to complete it; however if your time is limited you can choose to just do a small part of it. Here are some of the places and things you will see along the way:
The Blue Ridge Parkway
This is a short yet a scenic route that is popular among camping, outdoors and nature lovers. It starts in the Shenandoah National Park in Virginia and ends in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina; running along the southern Appalachian Mountains.
Florida and California trips
Florida on the east and California on the west are probably the most popular destinations in the US.
In California you can discover the coast running from San Francisco south to San Diego, enjoy the sunsets, ocean, the quiet cosiness of the smaller cities and the vibrant nightlife of the larger ones. The places worth seeing along the way include: Santa Cruz, Monterey, Big Sur, Cambria, San Luis Obispo, Santa Maria, Santa Barbara, Malibu, Los Angeles and, of course, many more.
