    I have paper maps, a road atlas, GPS in my phone with Google Maps, but you know what I use when I'm on the forum here making recommendations and answering questions? Microsoft Streets & Trips. I...

    What I'd recommend is you go from New Orleans to the Grand Canyon as quickly as possible, so you would have time to visit some of the southern Utah parks on the way to Las Vegas. This would mean you...

    If I were making this trip, I'd plan on a compromise - via STL, OKC, and ABQ. I've done the southern route through Texas and don't really recommend it. This is only about 100 miles longer than the...

    The most efficient option from I-84 to Providence is this:

    Just east of Waterbury, take I-691 to I-91. Go north to CT-3 and cross the river on the Putnam Bridge. Get on CT-2 and take that to...

    I show that Fallon to SLC via Austin is only 500 miles if you take 93/Alt-93 from Ely up to I-80. However, why are you going to SLC, then leaving again in the morning? Why not take US-50 all the way...

    Welcome to RTA!

    The middle of May may just a tad too early for Yellowstone - most facilities don't open till the last week in May. The roads *should* all be open, but there's no guarantee. It's...

    Welcome to RTA!

    What you should do is take the Google Maps driving time and add 20%. You should not try to drive more than 550 miles a day on Interstate quality highways, less on secondary roads....

    If you are anywhere near I-80 in PA, take that to Youngstown, then I-76 to I-71 to Columbus to get to I-70. If you are in southern PA, you could get to I-81 south to Hagerstown, I-70 to I-68 to I-79...

    Looks good. Note that if you want to do the North Rim, US-89 is closed from the US-89/Alt-89 junction to Page. There is a bypass (US-89T) which runs from just north of the US-160 junction to Page. ...

    Welcome back!

    You have plenty of time to expand your loop to encompass the Grand Canyon, Monument Valley, and even some of the southern Utah parks. It is likely going to be cold and you will...

    You can take a quick trip around Lake Tahoe and still go to Yosemite. You would simply leave via the southeast and get to US-395, then go in from Lee Vining on CA-120 over Tioga Pass.

    Welcome to RTA!

    Atlanta to Lexington is a 7 hour drive on I-75 all the way. Assuming you leave ATL in the early AM and are planning on spending the night in Lex, you have some wiggle room to see...

    Welcome to RTA!

    This looks like an excellent plan, and I don't see any legs that are too long for one day. If you are using Interstate highways, you can drive up to about 550 miles a day without...

    Welcome to RTA!

    1. It's hard to define "best" but if you don't already have a car, I'd probably get a small SUV or crossover. Something like a RAV-4, CRV, or Forester would be economical and...

    You might also want to reverse the direction of your trip, doing the coast southbound. This will keep the scenic pullouts on your side of the road.

    Or you could head up to Laughlin and find a deal in one of the casino hotels. I'm a Harrah's member and got a room for $29 a few years ago.
