What about a road trip to the United States?
You can make this summer special by exploring the locations nearby and having short-term weekend getaways or a proper road trip throughout the country.
America is the best place for a road trip! Magnificent views, long distances, great roads… There are so many places to explore!
Before thinking about the route, make sure you car is fine and you have all the necessary things to start off your travel. You can find absolutely anything here delivered to you. Do not own a car? Or decided to road trip while away from home? Hire a car with Dollar Car Rentals (offers a great discount for a sign up) or Thrifty (flexible and easy booking process) – the leaders companies in the US market.

What about traveling a bit old-fashioned way? Here is an old-fashioned website VacationsMadeEasy for quite conventional destinations. Pigeon Fordge, Myrtle Beach, Nashville. Very cute service celebrating 20 years.
If you decided to opt for a bigger city, you might consider booking a more expensive accomodations, say LOEWS hotel. It is far more convenient to use aggregating website as Expedia, Booking or Orbitz while searching for a suitable option (also, sometimes these websites offer discounts and seasonal offers).
And our most favorite option is Airbnb! The program has many benefits too! Register and get a decent discount for your first booking if you follow our link here 🙂
Tip: always check the prices with the hotel directly, sometimes it’ll be cheaper.
If you decide to hit a bigger city on the way and go sightseeing, we recommend you to save up by using CityPass. Check out the deals, most of the state capitals are covered and offer great discounts!
