I am planning my first cross country road trip...very exciting but also intimidating. My overall goal is to move from Boston to LA by way of Washington DC and Phoenix. Those are necessities. I think it makes sense from DC to use St. Louis as my next destination, since it is the gateway to the west and also seems efficient.
This is the point where I get stuck however, since I don't really know the Plains States. I would love to see monument valley, but also want to be smart about heat. Any suggestions on a route?
Also, would it be possible to do this trip in 5-7 days with two 20-something drivers? We are willing to take time in some spots and hustle in others.
Thanks! This is a great site!
