Travel USA by Bus
Buses are more frequent than trains, and they go to just about everywhere. Be warned though, some of the bus stations may be located in grotty areas.
The iconic brand of Greyhound is synonymous with affordable long-distance bus travel up and down the States from Canada in the north to Mexico in the south; and coast to to coast across America, from the Mid-Atlantic to the Pacific Coast.
GotoBus offers a centralised booking site for bus travel in the USA, using the same model to purchase bus tickets that reservation websites use for airline tickets. With tickets for many independent bus companies in the database, it's a great alternative to Greyhound travel.
Travel USA by Car
National Scenic Byways were established by Congress in 1991, to preserve and protect the nation's scenic but often less-travelled roads and promote tourism and economic development along them. Administered by the Federal Highway Administration, the U.S. Department of Transportation recognises National Scenic Byways for their archeological, cultural, historic, natural, recreational, and/or scenic qualities.

You can visit the website for free or buy a copy of Road Trip USA by Jamie Jensen on Amazon, to keep in your glove compartment when you're on the road and your Internet connection fails.
Travel USA by Railroad
Trains are a lot more fun than buses and let you see much more of the country, in a shorter time, than you would by car or plane. Many wonderful long-distance trains operate in the United States, often travelling through wildly spectacular scenery not easily accessible any other way.
The USA Rail Pass is still one of the best travel bargains around. Even though Amtrak no longer participates in the North America Rail Pass, that used to include travel on both Amtrak and Via Rail Canada for 30 days, you can still travel to Montreal and Vancouver with Amtrak. All you need to do is plan your trip.
With more than 30 train routes throughout the United States, and some in Canada, Amtrak travels to over 500 destinations in 46 states, giving you the best views North America has to offer. Whether you want to visit big cities, small towns or places you can only see by rail, Amtrak can take you there.
With 25 long-distance train journeys across the United States, and a further 12 in Canada, this is an essential handbook for anyone planning to explore the United States by rail.
The Tourist Trains Guidebook, by Trains Magazine, details hundreds of popular train attractions, museums, and railroad vacation destinations in the United States and Canada.
This unique travel guide will appeal to train buffs, individuals interested in historic trains and sites, and families looking for kid-friendly vacations.
