“Independent Travellers USA” is a route-based budget travel guide that selects the best public transportation routes to follow, cities to visit, and wilderness areas to explore. Experience the iconic landmarks of New York and 24-hour vitality of the big cities, through the vast range of landscapes and natural wonders—from the gentle villages and wooded hills of New England, awe-inspiring Grand Canyon, desert landscapes of New Mexico to the spectacular geysers of Yellowstone, the world's oldest national park—via jazz-stomping New Orleans, the fantasy glitz of Las Vegas, and much more. Drawing on the Thomas Cook Overseas Timetable for train and bus journeys and offering driving tour outlines, it describes popular routes with practical travel timings, and suggests plenty of detours and alternative destinations.
