Over the coming months there will be many new and exciting things happening with our site. For one, we will be bringing on guest writers for the first time – our first one is our friend Will, from Shwayze23 who will be hiking the Appalachian Trail this spring, and periodically updating us with pictures, thoughts, and information about his experience on the trail during the thru-hike 2014. If there ever was a great way to see the eastern seaboard, hiking the trail is it! Many of us don’t have the time to take this particular adventure, so we invite you to live vicariously through our friend on his journey.
On top of that, we plan to add other similar series – for trips in America that you might not think to take these days. For example, we will be covering the legendary Amtrak Coast Starlight train as it goes from Los Angeles to Seattle over a span of a day and a half. In this age of jet travel and instant gratification, the Coast Starlight is a throwback to a simpler time – when travel was more civilized! None of us here at VisitUSA have actually taken this trip, but we’re exciting to report back to you on how it goes!
