If you’re planning to take a trip to America this year, you probably already have quite a tight travel schedule. No doubt, you’ll be getting a plane to the state that you are visiting, and after that, you’ll arrange transport to your hotel. There you’ll probably spend a day relaxing until you’re ready to head out and see the sights you traveled there for. If you’re going with the kids, it’s going to be the theme parks, and even if you don’t have kids, you’ll still have a busy to do list, packed full of must see attractions and exciting adventures. But why not just throw those plans out of the window.
Rather than bothering to book a hotel, get your car once you arrive in the country and drive. Just drive wherever you want to go. Now immediately, you probably have a worrying question.
Is this possible?
Fair enough, it’s true, planning an unscheduled trip with no clear plan of what you’re going to do over there is not easy. Crossing state lines while visiting America isn’t always a simple process. However, it is certainly not impossible. You just have to arrange the right visa and make sure that you do let the authorities know what you’re doing and how long you’re going to be. So, you can’t spontaneously decide what states you are going to visit. You can, however, plan a trip through America carefully selecting, what states you want to visit. So, yes, while trickier it is possible to plan this type of vacation. You just need to make sure that you are back to leave when you are scheduled to depart the country. As long as you don’t overstay your welcome, you shouldn’t have any issues.
There are plenty, but arguably the biggest advantage is that you’ll get to see the real America. You see beyond the tourist attractions and the undeniably awesome activities there’s a living breathing culture in this country, filled with small forgotten bars, country diners, and incredible menus. If you look at a travel article on America, you will almost always find a reference to route 66. What is route 66? It’s a highway that was built in the early 1900s to provide a way to cross the states from east to west. Now, it’s been replaced by the interstate but the road network still exists, and you can travel down it, exploring forgotten towns and villages of America. It is truly incredible to visit places that receive virtually no tourism or outside visitors at all.
On this trip, you’ll meet new people, eat food that you never thought could taste so good and hear the beautiful country music. You can also go on the pancake tour of North America, trying the best pancakes across all the villages in these diners through every state.
The bottom line is that you probably never planned on visiting America in this way. But you definitely should because it will be a trip like no other you have ever experienced before.
