I'm planning a road trip with my boyfriend for May 2008. We live in Toronto Ontario and are 21. We are planning on renting a car and travelling the US for a month. He would like to camp, I would like to stay in nice hotels, so we plan to do both. We plan to have a budget of about $12 000 for this trip (saving all year!) Which is for food, camping, hotels, car, gas, activaties and souveniers.
We are looking for adventure (white water rafting, cliff jumping) as well as sight seeing (mountians, waterfalls). Wildlife viewing and fun attractions. My dad is American and has travelled through the states many times, and has helped us a little, but any advice is always helpful!
Our desired route is:
Tuscon (staying with my sister) (down to mexico for a day)
Vancouver (staying with my other sister)
Back to Toronto
Some places we plan on spending a few days, others just a night. Does this time frame and budget seem do-able? Any suggestions of things we should see or do in any of these places. Or any places near our route we should check out? All suggestions/comments/advice appreciated! Thanks!
