Does anyone have any suggestions for budget accomodation in Fort Lauderdale? Also, what is the best way to hit major cities in the US for a budget traveller? Bus, train, flying?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Carmella,

Wow, it's been a while, so I hope this post is still useful for you. I grew up in the US and have backpacked through 47 states. Although it's a big country, I enjoy travel by train and bus. I find you can meet interesting people as you go, if you have the time. Renting a car is also a good option for some stretches if you want freedom of movement.

If you really want to see the US, I'd recommend the off-the-beaten track places, not just the majoy cities. It can be hard to get to the remote, amazing places without a car sometimes (unfortunately). Still, there's a Greyhound to remote places like Yellowstone National Park. I took a cross-country trip with my best friend-15,000 miles--and camped on Federal lands most of the way--only cost $10 for accomodations the entire trip. So if you can find a travel buddy, rent a car and camp in National Forests, wilderness areas, BLM sites, you name it, you can travel around everywhere for a reasonable amount.

Good luck if you go! I enjoy reading about your adventures, by the way.
