Is traveling the U.S. fun?

Is traveling the U.S. fun? I'm considering going to all 50 states (48 in one road trip, the other two sometime else), but I'm worried everything is going to blend together and I'll meet the exact same Amerigolem everywhere. Never left my state, so don't know how likely this is.

    I hate that roundtrip. It skips the east and west coastlines. You'd miss all of the best shit. That route that OP posted would take 2 months and cost 20k.

    You should do a west coast route and spend 3 weeks in early October when the weather is perfect. .

    My favorite travel experiences have always been road trips in the US, but I'm American. Roll down the window, turn on the radio, put the pedal to the metal, can't get much better than that. It feels like you could just keep on going and leave your whole life behind.

    I think anyone who considers themselves a Real Traveler should do a coast to coast road trip at least once. Do it alone or with some old buddies. It will change the way you see the US.

      Hard disagree. The north to south west coast route is literally the pinnacle of US roadtrips.

      East to west is 90 percent waste of time

      Yeah there's something unexpectedly kino about American road trips. I lived four hours away from the college I went to so I always had a decently long drive back to my hometown during break, but I always enjoyed them, especially late in the evenings when traffic has died down. Windowed rolled down, cup of coffee in your hand, dusky dark, only illumination in your car are those faint ambient lights from the dashboards, and listening to an alt/indie station on the radio with slight static; it's certainly a vibe.

      Maybe it's the sense of endlessness or boundlessness, or the potential novelty of discovering something new.

    Amerigay here, been to all 50 states. You will 100% be burned out on this roadtrip as planned.

    In retrospect, this pic is way more representative of the US than state boundaries.

    For example, there's no discernable difference between Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island.

    Put those two months into the western side of the country. The cities here are increasingly the same copy & paste, the true beauty in the States is the nature. And the western side is immeasurably more beautiful than the middle and eastern side of the country.

        Pretty chill imo. Southern but laid back compared to a lot of the south. White sand beaches. Rednecks on vacation drinking Bushwhackers. Waffle House. Shrimp joints. Best shrimp and oysters I've ever had. Sandy, white sand beaches. Inland waterways. Swamps. Moss hanging in the trees. Visited there last year considering a potential move from California (shutup I hate the leftism here) and liked the area. Reminded me of what San Diego was like in the late 80s early 90s when I was a kid before it became gentrified to hell.

          Also I drove there from San Diego. Went the long way through like 13 states in many highways. Took a week just to get there. You should unironically do your road trip OP. I saw a lot and learned a lot about this country and what makes us Americans and what makes us different.

        Lived within the region for most of my life before I was forced to move up to PA. I loved it there, people like to pretend the South is a racist terror state but I'm a person of color (not black) and I was always treated kindly. The Gulf Coast has both rustic charm and the most intelligent and economically successful people I've ever met. You have CEOs who volunteer at church, doctors who hunt game on weekends, and plenty of rednecks with surprisingly high-class taste (in cars and alcohol at least). It's an eccentric mixing pot and unique even within the South. It's very affordable to visit, and the food is incredible--not just barbecue and deep-fried stuff (though you can get plenty), but because it holds the largest concentrations of Vietnamese, Cajun, and Hispanic people in the US, you get incredible fusion cuisine that California wishes it could be privileged to have. As for me, I liked to go fishing in Galveston, and I would go with my friends to San Antonio for the river walk. (Is that technically the coast according to the map? Not sure, too lazy to check.) Of course, if you care about aerospace and military museums, that's America's hotspot.

          Not my experience. Im a person of color and have been told that my kind isnt wanted in this area, and to leave town before sundown. Then again I do look like an Incan.

    Seriously, do a west coast trip. And don't rush it. Don't spend every day driving. Yosemite National Park is worth 3 days. South Lake Tahoe in September is fricking heaven on earth. Las Vegas in the fall is amazing. You can go in October and it would be 80 and sunny every day, and 65 at night. That;s the best time of year to avoid the crowds in the Grand Canyon too. Frick driving across Oklahoma and Missouri.

    You will want to blow your brains out after the third day. Driving across the Midwest sucks. Driving in the south sucks. Texas is kind of cool in parts but it also fricking sucks overall. Just do from Washington to Southern California or vice versa, then maybe to Vegas and the Grand Canyon

    Let's call this a 40 day trip. That would cost you $2,000 just in gas. 40 nights in a hotel at $80/night is another $3,200. You figure $20/day for meals for 40 days if you do it really cheap, that's another $800. Realistically though, you'll spend a lot more than that on food since you can't cook, or you'll have to eat nothing but fast food. Some of the distances between those locations are 500 miles, so that's 8 hours of driving on a lot of days. You leave at 9 am, stop an hour for lunch, you show up at your destination at 6pm just in time for everything to close, no parks, no museums, no farmers markets. You eat some fast food for dinner,, fall asleep in your sad hotel. Then you wake up and do 8 hours of driving the next day through Alabama or some other god forsaken place. This is the worst trip idea ever.

      Or he could, you know, leave at 5/6 am and completely side-step your problem. Not like there's nothing to do at night, but he might as well sleep early and wake up/leave early if it's not a busy town.

      >What's wrong with your life anon?

      Lots of people like to do that. Responsibilities and problems at home wear people down, and they get a feeling of freedom when they stop having to worry about it. There's probably nothing wrong, just a busy modern life.

    I've done two noteworthy roadtrips as a NC resident:
    1. Delaware - Rhode Island - Connecticut - Cape Code - New Hampshire - Boston - Maine - New Jersey

    2. NYC - Boston - (Canada) - New Hampshire - Maryland
    Had a great time and planning for a Midwest route next year to hit up the MIMAL states.
    My recommendation: Absolutely do not do all 48 in one road trip. Hell, don't do 20 or more in one road trip. Way too much driving and too many destinations. You will get burned out. Pick some region of the US that interests you and plan a 1-3 week road trip to explore that region. You will have a lot of fun, no need to do the entire country.

    How long have you got OP?

    I've done quite a few road trips. I had a 4 week roadtrip just for California, Nevada, Arizona and Utah, but I still didn't get up to San Francisco because I got to Reno and then realised I didn't really have time to do that and Yosemite, so did that and then cut across to the coast back to LAX to take the car back.

    There was way more to see and do in Utah and Arizona than I had expected, and I loved it so much that I spent the majority of the time at national parks. Since then you've got parks introducing lotteries for certain trails, which is a huge pain for road trippers.

    Thinking less in terms of states and more in terms of geographic/cultural regions will do you better.

    Upper New England, mid atlantic, central/sputhern appalachia, deep south, south florida, gulf coast, central midwest, upper midwest, greak lakes, ..., these are more descriptive than "Maine, Mass, DE, VA, PE, ..." and you definitely will find unique cultural and human types in all these different places.

    Life-long Missouri resident here, thinking about moving to another state in the future.

    Is Missouri just fricking ugly? Every time I visit or even pass through another state, I'm impressed by how beautiful it is. The rational part of me tries to temper my expectations saying, "You're only seeing the beautiful parts of this state, surely it has its ugly side too." But recently a couple of my (more well-traveled) friends have assured me that Missouri really is a shithole.

    At least we have caves and a low cost of living, MObros...

      No, you're totally right. Missouri is really bad. Why don't you pack it up and move down to Miramar Beach Florida. You could drive Uber while you're looking for a job. They're desperately in need of uber drivers down there. You can make a killing as a server or bartender in the summer. Besides being one of the prettiest beaches in the US, It's a really safe area with no blacks.

      Yes anon. It's one of the worst states. Most of it is nothing but agribusiness and yet somehow it lacks the "old west" ranching charm that places like Oklahoma and Texas have. Its two main cities are some of the most Black person-infested shitholes in the country rivaling only places like Newark or Baltimore. The only good part of Missouri is the area around Branson and even that is ruined by sprawl type development and too many businesses that are tourist traps.

    Notice how the demoralization posters are nowhere to be found for this thread. No endless parapraghs dissuading you from coming here. No, when it comes to america, everything is great! No problems whatsoever! Best country in the world!

    OP, be careful. The US is a dangerous shithole. You can be charged with a crime for going either above or below the speedlimit. You can be accosted at rest stops by the local fauna.

    Skip this dump and do a Russian roadtrip instead.

    IMO the USA is the most fun place to travel, you find weird unexpected shit, beautifil nature, Europe and Asia are nice to see, but in the USA you get pretty consistent quality accomidations and food, consistently friendly and cool people, weird little cultural regional things you would never expect, nobody is THAT nativist compared to Europe and Asia
    It's most fun to travel the USA with no plan
