Thread: SF to DC

    Default SF to DC

    Hello. First post ever. Last fall I travelled from San Francisco to New York city. It was my first road trip and it went fine, without a hitch and in the time I had planned (5 days). I am planning a new trip this year. I am travelling from San Francisco to Washinton, DC. Last year, when I was planning my trip, I came to this site and found a very useful tool where you entered where you wanted to go and it would give you detailed information with hotels and places to eat, etc. but now I can't find it!! I know that trips of this kind are a no-brainer. Last year, I simply took I-80 East and that got me all the way to the east coast but I found the hotel and restaurant info (along with toll roads and other things) very useful. Anyway, does anyone know where that went? I tried Yahoo directions but it's telling me to take I-80 E again and then switch to another highway in the vicinity of PA--I don't want to do that. I want to travel in the south. Anyway, if someone knows where that li'l tool went I would appreciate it if you could let me know. I also welcome any tips you guys want to offer. Thanks.

    Default maybe here

    Welcome Back to the RTA forum!

    I'm not exactly sure of the program you are talking about, but if I had to guess, you would find it along with our reviews of online mapping software.

    Otherwise, there is search bar on the left side of the website, and you could try your hand looking there.

    Thanks MW Mike! You know what, I went back to last year in my emails and found it (I had sent detailed trip directions to myself)! It's called freetrip. I just used it but you can't manipulate it as I remember it. I guess I'm going to AAA to get their triptik map. Freetrip also gives me I-80 E as a route. I entered then Los Angeles as my point of departure and I get I-40 E, however, that doesn't go to Louisiana and the Carolinas (places I want to see). I believe I-10 E does (LA not the Carolinas). Anyways, any tips are appreciated.

    Like Midwest Michael mentioned, it was probably one of the trip planners we have reviewed. If it was Interstate-highway centric -- I would bet it was the one by TravMatix.
    I want to travel in the south.
    Are you a human or a bot? Those mapping programs serve at the pleasure of person using they keyboard. If you want to travel on southern highways, direct the program to go to those destinations and route accordingly.
