Sorry in advance for how long this is going to be.
My wife and I are currently planning a coast-to-coast road trip, and would love some advice. We're from Australia, have never been to the states before, probably won't be able to get back for quite some time, and want to see as much as we possibly can.
We're not squeamish about driving long distances, but would need to break them up a bit with breaks. As for conditions, we understand that it can't be completely avoided, but we'd like to drive in as little snow as possible.
As for what we want to see: we're pretty much up for anything! We both really love food and beer though, so are looking forward to trying as many regional dishes and craft brews as we possibly can!
We start on the 20th of December 2014 in Orlando, Florida. We are scheduled to fly out on the 17th of Feburary 2015 from San Francisco, California. I have some ideas for our route, but am completely open to suggestions. I want to be in Savannah for Christmas day, but otherwise dates are completely in the air at the moment.
START: -Orlando (FL)
*At this point, I have thought of two different routes:
*I'm leaning towards option 2, just to trim some time off the total journey.
*I am trying to decide between 2 different routes here again, they are vastly different this time. They are:
-Oklahoma City (OK)
-Santa Fe (NM)
-Various stops, sights, and small towns in TX.
*I am thinking that route 1 sounds better here, but I'd love to hear some other opinions.
-Las Vegas (NV)
-San Diego (CA) *Thinking of maybe skipping this though.
And I'm done! It's worth mentioning that we'll be spending time in NYC, Washington DC and Disney World before this trip begins. Thank you so much for reading this! I'd love to hear any input or suggestions you'd have to offer.
