There has never been a better time to travel across the country. This year is a great year for doing a coast to coast trip. New York to Los Angeles, and back again! Without a doubt, these are two of the best places in the world, so take a little time out and explore all that they have to offer. See the Empire State Building and the Statue of Liberty. Check out the Hollywood Hills and shop on Rodeo Drive. Whatever you go for, make the journey each way part of the fun. Here are the top four ways to get to New York and back:

Don’t just book yourself on a commercial flight and be sat next to a snorer for the whole trip. Instead check out some private jet charters and enjoy traveling in style. This is definitely an incredible way to make an entrance as well. Make the most of traveling in luxury and enjoy being a little pampered on route.


[highlight color=”blue”] Chauffeur driven   [/highlight]  Forget taking a cab, why not hire a luxury limousine with a uniformed driver to take you to and from the airport?  You can even use one to drive you around town as you hit the tourist trails. Crack open a bottle of bubbly and enjoy traveling in style door to door. Take your time to enjoy the scenery from the comfort of your limousine. Enjoy being treated like a celebrity and make sure you give that all-star smile every time you open the door!

[highlight color=”blue”] Road trip [/highlight]   Pack up a big suitcase full of clothes and two or three of your besties. Next, hire a fabulous car and get out your road maps. Avoiding tolls is completely doable, but any road trip across this distance is going to take days! Get ready to book into some cheap motels. Take in Philadelphia and Washington. Then head down toward Nashville and Tulsa. You can even see some of Santa Fe and Vegas before arriving in LA. Pick your stops, and split the driving between you all. There’s nothing quite like it! Whichever way you go, you are looking at approximately three and half thousand miles from sea to shining sea. You are definitely going to need some gas stops!


[highlight color=”blue”] Train [/highlight]  Some trains have carriages that are bit quieter, however, if you are keeping up with your social media and calls while you are traveling, you may not be able to take advantage of them. You can take an overnight train and sleep in a family room with a pal or two. It’s not a bad way to travel if you are on your own either because they are so security conscious. Most importantly, it saves you any hassle with waiting at airports and the views on the way are amazing if you travel in daylight hours. This may not be the cheapest way to go, but you can’t beat the benefits of train travel. Get from LA to New York in about twenty hours. Have a great journey!
