Can I Travel?

The United States is very big. It takes about 20 hours to get to Miami, Florida by car and about 36 hours to get to Los Angeles by car. Although we have a train system, it is less efficient than most other countries. For that reason, most Americans travel by plane. Find out what you need to do to travel inside and outside the U.S.
