North-America has a lot more to offer than just endless highways and big hamburgers. The country is full of stunning coastlines, the most beautiful national parks and desolate deserts. Buckle up and plan your road trip across the United States today!
In pioneers’ footsteps
Top left on the map of the United States, you’ll find the beautiful and rather untouched state of Oregon. In this state, the famous Oregon Trail comes to an end and hence marked the destination for nineteenth century pioneers seeking a new life in ‘wild west’. Given the fact that the original Oregon Trail is over 2,000 miles long, a journey along the entirety of the route is not advisable, however, as part of your West Coast exploration, a small part of the Trail is definitely worth a try. So start your trip in Portland, the capital of Oregon, and discover what this land of pioneers has to offer!
Test your luck
Travel along the West Coast and move inland to find the city that never sleeps: Las Vegas. Whether you enjoy gambling or fancy a glamorous show, you’re all set in this desert city. Make sure to book a room in advance to prevent overpaying, and make sure you park your car somewhere away from the strip. Parking can be hugely expensive in Las Vegas; and you probably want to use your valuable money elsewhere.
When driving away from the coast, take a moment to enjoy the wonders of Yosemite National Park on your way to Las Vegas. After visiting the city, you can choose to cross Death Valley National Park. As the name suggests, this desert-scenery is dry and monotonous but spectacular nonetheless. Make sure to bring enough water, because temperatures can be raging hot.
Still not bored of the sand triangle bordering Nevada, Arizona and Southern California? Take your trip a little further East and enjoy the magical landscape of the Grand Canyon!
Meet the stars
After days of sand and dust, you crave luxury. And luxury you’ll find on your next stop: Los Angeles. Glitter, glamour, Hollywood and Beverly Hills – Los Angeles speaks to the imagination and offers everything you ever wished for, and more. With movie stars walking past you on an hourly basis and recognizing every street corner from your favourite series and films, you’ll never be bored.
Moreover, Los Angeles is the perfect city to end your road trip as most intercontinental flights depart from LAX. So enjoy the trendy culture of LA for a few days before you go back to the reality of life!
New York, New York
Want to take your trip to the far east of the continent? Start in New York. The ambiance of the city of lights will definitely amaze you. Visit Broadway or take a boat trip across the Hudson river and get the best view of the famous Statue of Liberty. Not enough still? Indulge in New York’s nightlife and experience nothing like you’ve ever experienced before.
Trust us when we say the United States has enough to offer to entertain you for months. So take the time to explore this beautiful part of the world and be warned: you’ll already want to come back right after you’ve left.
