I'm going to have some free time next spring and have decided to spend it discovering the US. I'm a Brit and my previous trips over the pond have been to New York, Washington & San Francisco, (the last of these being when I was about 14.) Now that I've just graduated I want to explore some more. I'll be travelling by myself and was thinking of going for 4-6 weeks, probably setting off mid-April or a bit later. I have some cash put aside and want to have an experience to remember, but obviously money doesn't grow on trees! I've really only just started looking at this and below is a list of initial questions I've got. I'd love to hear any advice both from Americans and those who may have done a similar thing. The obvious one - where to go? How to get around? - organised trip/internal flights/bus or train pass/look at getting a car (though I imagine this last option would cost serious money) or a mix How much to budget? - per day for living and in total (excl. getting to and from the States.) What is the best way to meet others whilst out there? My only similar experience to this was inter-railing round europe for 3 weeks but it was with 2 friends.
