Traveling by Bus in the US: Rolling up the East Coast, from Charleston to Boston

Many travelers dream of taking the Great American Road Trip and traveling the highway from town to town across the United States. How about taking the journey in the form of a cross-country bus trip?

Traveling by bus lets you leave the “how are we getting there” part of the planning to the experts – all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the ride. Companies, like Megabus, have established many routes across the country and are popular with students and budget travelers, while Greyhound, the biggest bus company in the country, has a combination of bus lines that makes it possible to go nearly anywhere.

The following bus trip concentrates on the East Coast of the United States, which is rich in historical and interesting cities.
