USA travel route suggestions?


I’m from the UK and am thinking about spending 1-2 months in the USA next year as part of my “gap year”.

I’ve looked into getting a Rail Pass for the Amtrak and was wondering if anybody could suggest any cities in the US that are worth visiting.

I’ve been to New York, LA and Vegas before so I don’t really want to go back next year.

I was thinking of starting in DC or Boston and travelling to Seattle but am not sure where in between!

Thanks :)

You’re going to have to change trains in Chicago anyway heading west from DC, so I’d recommend a stop there.

Fortunately you’ve already posted this on both the train travel and road trips forum.

Those are the best places to get advice on this rather than a city-specific forum like this one.
