USA in 4 weeks

Jump to last reply

I am planning a 4 week trip to the USA in april/may time next year flying from london starting on the west coast and hoping to fly home from the east. I wondered if anyone could help me with an itinery and the best ways to travel?

We are hoping to see as much of the main destinations as possible in that amount of time, which i appriciate will be difficult. The main places we hope to visit are san fransisco, san diego, los angeles, las vegas, grand canyon, new orleans, chicago, new york, washington, boston, niagra falls and other national parks if possible. Have decided to miss out the state of florida as have visited orlando before and plan to do the rest of it in another future trip.

My main question is...does anyone have a suggested travel itinery for our trip to make the most of it? I accept it may be unrealistic to try and do it all in 4 weeks but would love to give it my best shot.

What is the best way to travel? Would rather fly as little as possibble as do not want to miss any sights along he journey. Have thought about using the amtrak train service? Is this advisable? Or by car but am new to this as my partner and i who i am travelling with will only be 22 and have never driven abroad before. Will it be expensive due to our age?

What are the must see national parks as only have limited time?

Would really appriciate some advice, thank you : )
