    Note that you can't call ahead and book with one of those discount coupons - they are for walk-ins only and rooms are limited.

    With 8 days, you could do a "loop" trip if you fly into SF, seeing a lot more of what the West has to offer. You could drive down the Pacific Coast Highway toward LA, then cut inland and see the...

    Note that the best way through Denver from the north to the east is the E-470 toll road. It's cashless, if you don't have a transponder it will take a photo of your license plate and you will get a...

    There is only ONE option between Barstow and Kingman - that's Needles - and it ain't cheap, even the Motel 6 is $74 a night weekdays and $84 weekends.

    The only way you can get a better deal than...

    I would reverse the direction, go down the coast first, so the scenic pullouts will be on your side of the road. This will also increase the odds of Tioga Pass being open.

    Nope, just pay at the entrance.

    Going via Death Valley instead of 168/266/95 would add about 1 hour, plus stops.

    To go to Yosemite from SFO, take the best route out of where you are to I-580. From SFO Airport, that would be US-101 south to CA-92 and cross the bay on the San Mateo bridge. Take I-880 north to...

    I agree with Buck with one minor exception - go past Elyria another 10 miles to the I-480 exit, take that to I-271 to I-90. This avoids downtown Cleveland, which can get quite congested.

    Your...

    Take CA-58 out of Bakersfield to US-395. Take that south to I-15 toward San Bernardino. At the split, take I-215 to CA-210. Take that east to I-10.

    That's considerably faster than taking I-40...

    I just came across Buck's suggested route from St. Louis to Worcester over the past 3 days. I'd like to give you alternate suggestions. Buck left something off - you take I-81 from I-80 to Scranton...

    I would revisit the I-90 possibility, you would just have to go to Toledo to pick it up instead of through Canada to Buffalo.

    I know you said your passports are expired, but do you have an...

    That's almost 400 miles longer than my suggested route through Canada, and will take an extra day.

    Oh well, it was a thought. If you like Hondas, look for a CR-V.

    You do realize it's 5 full days from Montreal to LA via fastest routes with no sightseeing except through your windshield? That's through Toronto, Detroit or Sarnia, just south of Chicago, then...

    I-90 to I-87 would work (but if you have passports or EDL's, going through Canada would be a lot quicker, take I-75 to Flint, I-69 to Port Huron, 402 to 401 to 403 to the Hamilton bypass, the QEW to...

    If there are 2 of you, have you considered driving the car instead of trailering it? You can do the speed limit or close to it in most rental trucks.

    I would probably stay on the Interstates - I-75 to Chattanooga, I-24 to I-57 to I-64 to STL, I-70 to KC, I-29 to Sioux Falls, then I-90 to Seattle. You are correct - I-90 is an easier tow route than...

    Welcome to RTA!

    If you went through Bakersfield, did you take CA-99? If so, I-5 is a bit more scenic as it doesn't go through the middle of the Central Valley and doesn't go through any cities. ...

    Make sure the rental company will allow you to take the car into Canada. If you are not returning the car to the same place you rented it, check on how much the one way dropoff fee is.

    There are 3 good choices from Torrey to Page, with a variation on one:

    1. UT-12 west to US-89 south. 260 miles, will take you right past Bryce. UT-12 highly recommended for scenery.

    2. ...

    What is your current vehicle, and how many miles does it have on it? Your most economical choice may very well be to get it fixed up and take it.

    FYI, I believe Lifey is averaging somewhere...

    Tolls are only charged southbound - going into the city - but if you wish to drive southbound, advance arrangements need to be made for paying the toll ($7).
