hello all,

im planning on a 3month trip to america

i am thinkin of the following

Fly into NYC in mid June
Work my way down the East Coast to Florida looking for part time work on the way then across the south to see for example New Orleans,
Then across to Texas, California, ideally go to Vegas and the Grand Canyon somewhere around here
Then i want to finish off in San Francisco in mid August and fly back to the uk

We were also thinking of heading into Mexico whilst in California, to go to Tijuana etc. Is there anything we need to do, paperwork etc, or can you just turn up at the border and go?

I think that's pretty much everything I can think of.. If there is anything more info I've left out, feel free to ask! Any help would be really appreciated.

many thanks :)

Looks like a fun trip. Hope you enjoy it. There is tons to see here and not even a year long trip would be enough to see it all. -snip-

As far as border crossing into mexico goes. If you are traveling by car I believe all you should need is your passport and you should be fine.

This is mid June right now - do you really want to come when the Southwest is on FIRE?

I suggest October

If you are limited to 3 months, make sure you plan:

  • what dates you would like to be in each place
  • How long it's going to take you to get there
  • How are you going to travel around when you're there
  • finally, what you would like to do while you're in each location

If you're traveling on a budget I would suggest looking for discounts and deals. I would recommend searching and planning or at least have an outline of your 3 months in the US. Try looking for travel deals on this site called student rate. You might find something there.

Good luck! and wear sunscreen!;)

I like your advice!

I think I used that before for the megabus deal...

anyhow, I also know they have discounts for car rentals....Maybe that would be a better option for you?
