I hope that you will be able to help me with some thoughts and recommendations.....geography, transport & accommodations within the US. Must see's/do's, probably should avoid etc etc. I will apologise in advance as this may be a long post.
I've wanted to come to the US now for a few years......it looks like I will be able to this either later this year or more likely in 2016.
There are 3 things on my agenda...baseball, food and craft beer.
I don't have an affiliation with any team.....but I do love watching games that are held in San Francisco; the place looks great on TV.
The food thing comes from somehow getting an interest in Diners Drive Ins & Dives (don't laugh).....most of the places this guy seems to go look awesome
The craft beer.....well I shouldn't really need to explain that.
My trip will probably be 10 days in total.....take off a couple of days travelling on either end, so I will have 7 or 8 nights on US soil.
From my initial research there is not much difference in the price of flights from the UK to either the East or West coast. Usually around £50 extra for a return flight to LAX as opposed to New York.
I've also looked at flying in to one coast and returning from the other.....but the price was utterly prohibitive. Internal flights seem to be reasonably priced.
I appreciate a bit of sunshine, so the West coast appeals. I know there is a lot of beer related stuff out that way.....I'm a regular BN listener so maybe those guys have skewed my view somewhat.
So what suggestions do you folks have?? Are internal flights and multiple destinations doable on such a short time frame or do you think I would be better concentrating my limited time over a smaller area?
Am I missing out by only really considering East or West coast?? What else is there?
Any pointers and tips would be much appreciated and thank you in advance for any help forthcoming.
