Travelling across The USA - HELP

Jump to last reply

I am looking for advice for my travel plans next summer. I am planning to travel across the US next for 6-7 weeks.

I will be 19 years old, so renting a car is not an option, meaning I will be using Amtrak train service to travel between places. I am not interested in the tour companies due to the lack of freedom in where you want to travel and for how long.

Here is a rough itinerary, and I am looking for any possible suggestions or guidance you could give me:

• Fly into Orlando

• Orlando to Atlanta – here is my main issue of travel, the train takes me via Raleigh and Charlotte (NC) and therefore this hikes up the price a lot, are there any other alternative travel options in this section of my journey?

• Atlanta to Washington DC

• Washington DC to New York

• New York to Niagara Falls

• Niagara Falls to Toronto

• Toronto to Chicago

• Chicago to Glacier National Park

• Glacier National Park to Seattle

• Seattle to San Francisco

• San Francisco to Los Angeles

• Los Angeles to Palm Springs

• Palm Springs to Pheonix

• Pheonix to Gran Canyon

• Grand Canyon to Dallas (and then fly home)

Also, roughly how much money would I need not including the travel? I would be eating on a budget, and staying in cheap hotels.

I am currently in early stages of planning, so any advice is kindly welcomed. Thank you.
