We are two adults and two younger children.
This is basically a last minute trip and we have approx 3 weeks to complete it.
We have driven from Ga to Tx before, it was a straight shot and we didn't really stop except for gas or food. I would love to make a stop off the 20 somewhere for just a few hours (site seeing). Any suggestions?
We will then travel to California (San Diego) and stay 3-5 nights. Our next destination after CA is Maryland (Easton). We can go back to Texas (Arlington) and stay the night bc we have family there or we can go straight from CA to MD. My issue here is we are unfamiliar with the interstates and the land. We will be in a minivan and even though I don't mind staying at hotels - we will be in unfamiliar territory and it kinda scares me (I probably watch too many movies).
We plan to stay in Maryland for the night and off to New York (Queens) for 4-6 nights. Then eventually drive down the coast which we have done numerous times to Georgia.
Both my husband and I enjoy driving so we can take turns.
So what do you guys think? I will probably go to Barnes and noble tomorrow to look at books, maps and guidebooks.
The main purpose of the trip is to visit family and friends - we have selected these cities for a reason and the bonus would be to stop and see a few monuments and such (take photos) and be on our way to our next destination.
Thank you for your time.
