  1. Default Los Angeles to New York City in 3 weeks

    Hello everyone! My husband and I are in the beginning planning stages for a road trip from Los Angeles to New York which will take place next year either in August or September. I do not know anything about planning a road trip so any suggestions would be great! We will be spending the most time in New York but would like to see any fun things along the way. Thank you!

    Default Planning Basics

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    You're already ahead of the game just by starting to think about your trip this far in advance. Another way to get a leg up would be to look over all the tips on the Planning Pages, but mainly feel free to start dreaming. Get a map of the US and start marking on it all the places you'd like to see on your cross-country journey. Start with some of the major stops such as the Grand Canyon, or Yellowstone, or Monument Valley - whatever appeals to you. Pretty soon you should be able to start connecting the dots for a workable itinerary (3 weeks will allow you to see quite a lot of the US!). Finally check back in once you have a better idea of where you'll be going and what you want to see for more detailed help. If you have specific interests such as historic sites, scenic byways, oddities, wildlife, whatever - that's the time to ask what's along your basic route, and what might be worth a small detour. Right now you've got a blank slate, perhaps the most exciting, and daunting, point of planning any RoadTrip.
