You’ll need to think long and hard about your route when planning this trip as America is a vast country where everything is very far apart. However, you should have no trouble seeing all the locations mentioned in this post if you intend to travel for at least two weeks. Ideally though, you should aim to make your trip a month in duration for the best experience. With all that in mind, let’s take a look at some of the states you should check out…

Utah

This state is home to the Mormon church and is the least densely populated area in the entire US. As you can imagine, people who live here tend to have a lot of money, but don’t let that put you off. There are lots of mom and pops style restaurants and cafes for you to try, and there is some seriously cool scenery too. Just make sure you’re sensitive to local customs, and you should have a fantastic time. You could also go skiing in Utah if that sounds appealing.

Texas

If you want to experience an amazing climate and high temperatures, you can’t go wrong with a road trip to Texas. This state is home to the largest concentration of UFO enthusiasts in the world, and there are lots of relevant events and conferences held every month. If you’re interested in the possibility of alien life in the universe, you could learn a lot from a trip here. Also, Texas is considered to be the state that has stuck to it’s wild west history more than any other.

Montana

Montana is a mountainous state with lots of sleepy American towns. While the locals might turn their head when they see strangers driving into town, they’re always welcoming. The main cities in this state are similar to those all over the US with bars, restaurants and concert halls. However, you’ll get a much better experience if you stick to the small towns. Bordered by Idaho and Wyoming, there are plenty of national parks nearby that you could enjoy. All you have to do is find a good company that supplies used RV’s, and you’re good to go.

Wherever you decide to travel during your American road trip, we sincerely hope you have a fantastic time. The United State of America is an impressive place, and people rarely come home unsatisfied.
