Road Trip in the United States
Posted June 7th, 2013 - 11:16 pm by from Langenthal, Switzerland (Permalink)
Hello my dear friends!

I am planning to do a road trip through the United states in the end of July- August 2013. I will start in New York- Washington D.C- New Orleans- Texas- Grand Canyon- Las Vegas- Los Angeles- San Fransisco.
Every companion is welcome and I would be very glad if you can help me out in finding a couch or offering me a ride by car if you are heading the same way..

Thank you so much for your help!

I will only be arriving on July 9th, haven't figured out much regarding accommodation, guess i will play it by ear and see where the road leads me

Hi, Fabienne.
I do have similar plans this summer. Will do a 3-month road trip: Boston - New York - Philadelphia - Washington - Miami.
From 16. July - 16. October.
Unfortunately I don´t have a car either. Might see you on the road.

Hey Christoph Findelsberger,
I am doing the same trip but one month earlier and the other way round. I suggest you to get one or two amtrak train multi-city tickets (see http://tickets.amtrak.com/itd/amtrak/ComplexRail ) and then get from city to next city using that. It is a lot cheaper than flying airplanes or renting cars+gasoline and is a lot more comfortable too, if you want to do backpack traveling and stay in hotels/hostels or youth hostels.
