I have one week around Thanksgiving that will be spent on a road trip. I am trying to figure out just how far I should go. I will be traveling with my nephew on his first road trip from Houston, Texas. I have never travelled with a twelve year old boy before. We are going to attempt to see White Sands New Mexico, Carlsbad Caverns, and I am just not sure I want to try for the Grand Canyon if I am the only driver. I am planning to leave on Sunday before Thanksgiving at this point, I may however leave the Friday before.
What are some must see areas out side of Texas that would be accessible in November?
