US Road Trip advice for international traveler?

Los Angeles has all the major tourist traps like Disneyland, Magic Mountain and Universal Studios, but try and take in some sights like the Getty Center. It has one of the largest art collections in the world and because of it's large endowment, it's free.

Head to San Diego and see the best zoo in the world. You can take the train to/from L.A. The Surf Line Route has been voted one of the most scenic rail routes in the country. It runs along the coast with the tracks just yards from the Pacific Ocean. The train also stops in Anaheim, just minutes from Disneyland.

Some must see attractions in San Diego are the world famous Zoo, Sea World, and Balboa Park. Balboa Park is the largest urban cultural park in the country. You can get a park passport which allows you entry to a dozen museums as well as the zoo.

BTW Personally I would take the train from SF to LA/San Diego and then fly to NY. Not much to see in the midlle of the country from a bus or train, you really need a car to see anything. Also you'll waste days getting there. Better to spend that time in California or New York. The Amtrak California Rail Pass allows for up to 7 days of travel in California over a 21-day period for $159

International Airline Prices?

International Airline Prices?

There is no secret, magic website with the "cheapest" airfares. You have to do the research, and be as flexible as possible regarding travel dates.

Check the travel sites (airgorilla, expedia, priceline, travelocity, etc.) and also check the airline websites. I have usually (not always, but usually) found the best fares on the airline websites. An obvious choice for Atlanta ot London is Delta.

Check with a real travel agent to ask about promotional fares and special deals.

If you also need a hotel or rental car, check the cost of combining the purchases in a package. For example, I found a deal with airfare + hotel in Hawaii for a week that was only $100 more than just the airfare.

Also check the fares if you split the ticket. For example search New York to London (usually has the lowest fares across the Atlantic) and then check ATL to New York on airlines like JetBlue that don't use the travel sites. Be as flexible as possible regarding airports (NY and London both have 2 large international airports).

Good luck!

For example:

www.aa.com

www.delta.com

www.united.com

You are > better off < buying the ticket directly from the airline unless a travel site or travel agency offers a significantly better price.

Avoid buying tickets from unknown "travel" websites as some of them are scams.

Check with a real travel agent to ask about promotional fares and special deals.

If you also need a hotel or rental car, check the cost of combining the purchases in a package.

When traveling to far destinations check the prices when you split the ticket. For example, searching "Saint Louis to Brisbane" (all on one ticket) MAY cost much more than searching "Saint Louis to Los Angeles or Sydney" and then "Los Angeles or Sydney to Brisbane". If that turns out to be the case, talk to a real travel agent about getting the better fare all on one ticket.

Another answer is correct and check fares originating in Chicago.

Good luck!
