Completely revised and updated for 2006, "Let's Go USA" is the only choice for the budget traveller. Researched and compiled entirely by students who know first-hand how to see the world on the cheap, this guide has insider tips and information for the socially conscious traveller and is more useful and opinionated than ever. Stretching from the Tropic of Cancer to the Arctic Circle and spanning the North American continent, the United States is vast and boasts an amazing breadth of terrain. For this reason, and despite the massive airports and ease of air travel, the most rewarding way to see the country is by car. The road trip is an authentic American institution that has captured the imagination of statesmen, writers and lowly college students alike. Whether you see yourself as Jack Kerouac, Thelma and Louise or Hunter S Thompson, this guide provides suggested scenic drives and itineraries for travelling coast to coast so that you can join this great tradition. This title includes: detailed maps; listings at all price levels for accommodation, food, attractions and more; information on working, studying and volunteering in the region; and, time and money-saving tips.
