Is a US road trip worth it?

You hear a lot about US Americans and Canadians (Snow Americans) going to Europe backpacking through Europe, staying in hostels, travelling with public transport etc.

Is that possible at all in the US?

I know you guys have a shitty transport system and you're dispersed as hell. Would it maybe we worth going down the East Coast of West Coast instead? Are motels the US version of hostels? Also, would it not be super expensive?


Also, will I be murdered? Please respond.

There's going to be a massive amount of nothing that you'll see, before you get to anywhere that's actually decent.

I think it would be incredibly dull.

Honestly, it's not worth it unless you do live in the US. Plus, if you're going to roadtrip america, you go through the whole country, not just the coasts. If that's all you'd do, it's just a vacation, not a real roadtrip.

Backpacking? No.

The up and down a coast thing would be good though. But yeah, you might need a car

The only real question is, will you be raped before you get murdered, during your murder, after your murder, or all 3?

My mate keeps at me to go on a East to West trip with him. Starting in Buffalo and ending up in either Nevada or Oregon somewhere. Not a fan of Cali and its shitty bay.
I also want to do a North South(ish) hike on the appalachian trail from Maine to Georgia, which takes 6-7 months.
I think if you plan your route, and start/end points it could be fantastic. Don't just straight line it through the middle of nothingness.

No, as an American, I would say it isn't worth it.
1) The country is huge.
2) Motels are NOT hostels. They cost $50 minimum per night.
3) It's going to be VERY expensive (like 1000s of dollars, huge). Don't bother.

Out of all the cities on the east coast you pick Buffalo? smh



OT: West Coast or East Coast would probably be good. With the east you can start north and go through Boston, New York, Philadelphia, and DC. There is a bit of a stretch with not much, but the Carolina's and Georgia do have some beautiful stuff. Plus then you can end in Florida. And you could always go further in away from the coast and there is stuff like Nashville and New Orleans

And yea, you need a car. You're not going to see very much without one.

It will be very expensive and you won't get much help from strangers along the way. You will need to pay for gas (which varies in price through the country) , lodging every night, food, activities, and have some emergency money in case your car breaks down or something. If you can afford to travel comfortably with no real concerns, there are areas that are absolutely beautiful to travel through.



Also motels are shitholes and usually have bugs in them. I'd rather sleep in my car than in some of those places. You can find hostels in some major cities.
