Hi I am an 18 year old Australian and am planning on travelling to the USA next year. Am planning on arriving at the very beginning of March and travelling for 2 months before I leave to work in Canada.
I am planning on doing it as cheap as possible whilst still enjoying myself. I am quite aware it will still be quite expensive.
I do not know all that much about where to go in America. This is why I am writing this, my question to you is where should I go? What route should I take? What should I do? What are the must sees? How should I travel and where should I stay? I am aware I am being extremely vague in what I want to do/see and not giving you much to go on and I apologise for that! I honestly just dont know where to go or what to see! I do want to see a baseball game and an ice hockey game ( if they are in season at the time i am there) I also have a great interest in History, so any major historical sites would be great. I also owuld love to see the Grand Canyon. I want to get a true sense of America as I have never been there before. I understand it wil be impossible to see it all in 2 months, I will return at a later date to travel more but for now what should I see for my first time there?
I am hoping to end my trip in New York and flying to Canada from there.
I will be 19 years old, travelling alone, trying to do it on the cheaper side and travelling in March and April, please give me as many suggestions as possible! I need help in planning this trip as I have never travelled before and need help! Any help will be appreciated! Thankyou in advance! :)

I too will be interested in the replies to this thread as I hope to travel across the USA in July/August this year hopefully.

Pop over to the Fodors forum. Most of the people there seem to be Americans and will speak with local knowledge.

It is a BIG country. You are not going to see much in 2 months so don't try to do too much. Think of flying between destinations as distances can be great and long bus journeys often take boring routes.
