Renting a car in USA is really popular. We rented a car in Florida for less than 140 dollars per week. Even though it may seem a lot, the gas in the east of USA is around $2.50 per gallon. So you can refill your car for around 25-30 dollars. And if there’s four of you in the car, then the price become ridiculously cheap.
Don’t be sceptical. I know public transportation can be a little confusing, and you may be scared of it. but there is no need really!

Well, it may seem funny but for me there is sometimes no better transportation than walking. If you really want to get to know the city, national parks or wherever else you decide to visit. Nothing can compare to walking around this wonderland. So, don’t be lazy and maybe try some hiking. If you are not so good at it or if you don’t have the “proper” equipment then that’s fine, there is plenty of easier hiking options that are an option, even in your basic sneakers.
