Hi Philip,

Well - that can depend greatly on how you're planning to travel, what kind of amenities you like, what you want to see, etc. For example, camping across America is a whole heck of a lot cheaper than doing a country-wide tour of local Howard Johnsons.

I'm sure if you provide a few more details, such as:

  • what cities you're planning to see
  • what your "bed" of choice is
  • if you like to eat out or in
  • where you're flying from/to
  • how you'll travel around (bus, train, hitchike, plane, moped, bike...)
  • what "must sees" you've got on your list
  • etc.

... I'm sure you'll find plenty of answers!!

Tway.

Hi there

My girlfriend and I travelled from San Francisco right through to Miami from Nov 03-April 04.

We leased a van from SF and went to loads of cool places - most of the big cities and some National Parks inc Yosemite, Zion, Grand Canyon, Everglades and a whole bunch of things inbetween!

We mostly stayed in Motels mile Motel 6 and Days Inn, and when we weren't we camped or used a hostel. We drove approx 18000 miles all together and between both of us we spent around £10000.

We did everything we wanted to aswell, skydiving in Vegas, watching the Lakers, snowboarding in the Rockies and a week's break in the Bahamas! ;)

If you want any help give me a shout
