Hmm, since you were kind enough to tell me something about Bucharest, I'll reply to you with more questions. Where are you thinking of starting and ending from, and how long are you thinking of spending? I mean, if you want to see Chicago (which is fairly northerly) you probably wouldn't want to start in Jacksonville, Florida and finish in Los Angeles, California.
Otherwise, I'd recommend the sights of the Southwest.

I like to start from San Fran and end at New York. I plan to spend a month doing it. Any suggestions?

I would suggest taking the southern route during the winter and still advise you to be careful about the weather. Snowstorms can be brutal.

Same goes for the northern route in winter. Don't even consider that!!!

In summer time, the south is hot and humid, but well worth seeing .

The problem with suggesting any one route is hard due to the diversity of the country and what each region has to offer. Just so radically different everywhere you go with things well worth seeing in all areas.

I would however, NOT recommend traveling straight across because once you get to certain parts of the USA, it's flat and nothing but farmlands. Traveling through them can seem like a lifetime of boredom.

You should consider your interests and let us know more.

Greyhound Bus lines has a "See America" pass (or something like that) -- an economic way to travel & you'll meet, um..., *interesting* people on the bus. http://www.discoverypass.com/index.asp?referrerid=1

Do you want to see a lot of scenery (Grand Canyon AZ, Bryce/Zion UT, Mississippi River etc) or meet The Locals (LA, NYC, SF, Poughkeepsie, etc)?
