When you face a trip of the characteristics of the one made by U.S and Canada, a long road trip Coast to coast and back, the organization is very important in the development type of our traveling days.

In this regard, I will make some considerations about how we organize and what were our main daily habits during our travel through the United States.

How and where to eat

To start the day, in the vast majority of Hotels the room price already includes a breakfast Not very sophisticated but enough. Sometimes they have waffles What can you do yourself? Aurora became an expert in the use of special toasters where these products are prepared.

At noon, we almost always went to some establishment of numerous and varied american restoration chains, and never in more or less select restaurants, both for economic reasons and for their own philosophy.

So, we usually ate at Dennys, Fridays, Applebees, Grizzlys, Irish pubs, Taco Bell, Subways, McDonalds, etc. Of course, keep in mind that the vast majority do not serve alcohol, including beer.

After a long tourist day, on the road, or walking, what better than a Budweiser fresh or a Coors, so to enjoy it, you had to look for establishments that with bright neon exteriors advertise beer brands.

The dinners We usually drank them in the hotel room, with salads and snacks accompanied by beer cans. For this we used to look for hotels with refrigerators in the room, apart from the fact that most have both soft drinks and ice vending machines.

Laundry

To avoid wasting time going to public laundries, we decided to wash our clothes daily in the hotel room. In addition, it allowed us to previously reduce the size of the luggage.

Visits to museums and tourist attractions

For economic and time reasons, obviously you have to select well in advance what are the museums and visits to be made, which means giving up numerous places.

Car rides

In cities and towns we liked to take a car ride through downtown (downtown) of the city, where you can see the great skyscrapers that form the skyline.

We also like it a lot get lost by car through the various residential areas to see first hand how are the houses and neighborhoods where the inhabitants of this country live.

Night departures

Generally we did not make night trips. Only in some cities (Nashville, Memphis, Williams, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Niagara, Montreal and New York) We went out to dinner or to see live concerts.

Photos and daily notes

In order to be able to write later a travel chronicle in book format, and also publish it on the site, every day we spent time making notes that would serve as a summary of the day, while we were taking a lot of photos.
