Travel Forums North America budget for 3 months

Hey, I'm trying to plan a solo trip to north america but wanted ideas from experienced travellers how much money I would need to save.
I am a 21 year old female so obviously I will want to go out drinking and stuff and the places I would like to see would be new York, New Orleans, Texas and most importantly California. I will be staying in hostels and the occasional motel, where I can hopefully meet new people doing the same thing. I'm looking to travel by Amtrak. I will be spending most my time in california if this does go ahead. I don't really know what to expect from New Orleans and Texas in the sense that I don't know if many other people in their twenties would travel to these places, so if anyone can recommend any other places where you know young solo travellers would head, let me know!!! Thanks for your time !

Vegas baby! However, no train to Vegas anymore. But you can get here for less than $100 via air, buses are roughly $50 one way. Another option is these guys. Rideshare is about $20-25 between SoCal & Vegas.

Good luck with your planning.
