  the old Honda Civic saw many vistas

The USA is not noted for its mass transit despite train lines that cross its expansive horizon. Getting from one remote area to the next is just about impossible. Few of the countries National Parks are serviced by bus and if on a long trip, carrying all the camping gear you need to make a trip like this affordable would be a daunting task. I have been on extended trips around the country five times and always in a car. I carry gear for hiking, backpacking, kayaking/canoeing as well as all my camping gear so a car is pretty much the only way to go. You don't need a big SUV either. I did most of those trips in a small Honda Civic Hatchback which was great on gas.

It's one big country with lots of very open roads once you get "out west." It's a joy to drive in these areas so enjoy it while you can.
