Top tips for exploring the USA

If you have decided to take on the USA for your next trip, you might be wondering how to tackle this diverse and massive country.

With so much to see and do, and a lot of ground to cover, you need our top tips for exploring the USA to help you out!



Unless you have the budget and free time to spend many months travelling across the USA, you will need to prioritise to ensure that you have time to do all of the things that are at the top of your list.

Plan which places you’d like to see and look at how long it will take to get between them to work out if your expectations can become reality.


Take buses

The best way to get around the USA is by bus because they are the cheapest option, which is always handy when you are trying to budget, and they provide an easy way to get between different areas of the country.

If you decide to take the train instead, research rail passes or book your tickets in advance to ensure that you don’t end up paying over the odds for your travel.


Try camping

If you plan to visit some of the USA’s stunning national parks, camping is a fabulous option as there are always campsites around the parks, and they allow you to experience the scenery in the best possible way.

If you haven’t planned to take camping equipment with you, you can always buy some for a reasonable price when you get there, or rent what you need instead.


City tourism cards

Many of the main cities in the USA will offer city tourism cards which give you the opportunity to visit all of the main attractions for a reduced price.

They also often give you money off at a variety of local restaurants, so your food bills will be a little cheaper too!
