Cross-Country: Ways To See The USA

It’s no secret that the US has a lot to offer when it comes to travel. From Florida to New York, people flock to this part of the world each year to soak up the sights, though very few get to see much more than a small corner of it. Of course, with this country being so large, getting the chance to see everything in a single trip would take a very long time, and most people don’t have enough of it. To help you out with this, giving you the chance to see as much as you possibly can, this post will be exploring some of the best ways to transport yourself when your in the United States of America.

Public Transport

While it may seem a bit cheap, public transport is often one of the greatest ways to get across a large country. Unlike a lot of places around the world, the US has benefitted from being built in a time when trains were very popular. This has created a railway system which covers almost the entire country, and this is before you even consider taxis, buses, and other types of public transport on offer. Travelling like this will give you the chance to focus on your surroundings, enabling you to sightsee while you’re making progress. Of course, though, it’s worth reading reviews for the types of transport you choose before you use them.

Boats & Yachts

One of the biggest challenges for travellers in the US is the way that the country is laid out. With most of the most prominent cities and towns lying around the coast, getting from one place to another often involves a huge amount of travel. Taking to the ocean can be an excellent way to overcome this, giving you the chance to skip the challenges which are faced by those on land. By choosing a boat club with offices across the country, you can rent boats and dock wherever you like, making it incredibly easy to get from place to place without spending all of your time travelling.

Taking To The Sky

Air travel has long been the fastest way to get from place to place, as long as your journey is more than an hour or so. Travelling at far faster speeds than cars, boats, or trains, these machines can get you from city to city in a fraction of the time your other options present. This can give you the chance to do more sightseeing, though you will have to charter your own flight if you want to be able to choose the route you take. Some people prefer to use helicopters for this, though this won’t be quite as fast and will limit your options somewhat.

Getting across a country like the US can be frustrating when you don’t have much time to see everything. While you won’t be able to see the whole place in a single visit, it’s still worth maximizing the ground you can cover, and the options in this post are some of the best ways to achieve this goal.


  1. I've never been on a yacht, but I'd love to be on one someday, lol. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I think a train adventure would be a lot of fun. I wish we could do the train trips like they did in the old days, like on the Orient Express.

  3. My husband and I love to travel. I have found the greatest way to travel is the way that is most comfortable to you. However I have never traveled on a yacht/boat, sounds like fun to me!

  4. These are great ideas for ways to travel! I personally love road trips by car, but I would also love to be able to take a trip by train! It would be so much fun to stay in a little room on the train, and looking out while traveling.

  5. Yes, I should definitely go yachting--but I will probably mostly stick to air travel!

  6. I have always wanted to travel this country and to see the beauty the good Lord created for us. I am praying that one day I get to do this. Thank you for this informative article
