Travel throughout the United States is relatively easy, but do to the country’s size might take some time. Several domestic airlines offer flights all throughout throughout the country, for varying prices. In the contiguous United States, cross-continental flights can range from 5 to 6 hours, depending on the direction. Flights to Hawaii or Alaska can take substantially longer, especially from the east coast. Train service is only common along the Northeastern Corridor from Washington through Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, and Providence to Boston. It can be quite a bit more comfortable than flying, but of course takes longer. If you have a bit of time for your holiday, the US is a wonderful place to explore by car. Distances are long, but the world-class interstate highway system makes this form of travel convenient. With such beautiful landscapes, road trips allow travellers to really get a feel of the country. Stay at apartments and holiday homes throughout the country in big cities, as well as some of the smaller places off the tourist trail. In many cities such as Los Angeles, having a car is an asset as the public transit systems are often less extensive and less sophisticated as other major cities in Europe, for example.
