My boyfriend and I are thinking of taking my 12 year old nephew on a roadtrip this summer, probably August. We would go from RI to CA...Big Sur to San Diego (to see family) and then Grand Canyon...and then I am stuck. I am not sure what else to see from there...so from AZ back home to RI is empty. Also, any thoughts on renting a car vs. suv for the trip?
I am trying to make a budget as well, any idea as to how much to budget for food and such...I was thinking at least $1200 for fuel. This is my first road trip so I am not sure of the cost....thanks!
