I'm looking for proposals as to possible USA road trips, to follow up our 2013 'Roadtrip of a lifetime', which took me and my family to Vegas, Monument Valley, Lake Powell / Page, Zion, Bryce, Death Valley, Yosemite, Monterey and San Francisco over 3 weeks. The national parks and deserts in particular were out of this world.
We're now looking ahead to next year and we're keen to do another road trip, but I'm not sure if we will ever be able to top or even match that experience. Hence my request for help . . .
We (family of 4 with kids 12,10) will be travelling in July again, for 3 weeks, but definitely need to leave the last week for a relaxing time at a beach. Our priority is to see amazing places, we can withstand travelling distances no problem, but do want to have time to enjoy the destinations, rather than rush through them ticking a box. Comfort is important, budget is not a limitation. So 2 weeks of (intense) travelling, then a week to chill.
Options for us are another West Coast road trip but not repeating the above or maybe the Southern states - maybe focused on Florida / Louisiana - but we're really open for new ideas. We're in New York this Christmas, so have no real pull to the West coast road trip options this time.
All suggestions welcome and/or useful links to inspire me would be greatly appreciated
