  1. Default Roadtrip from Pittsburgh, PA to San Francisco, CA

    Hey everyone. I'm planning a road trip from Pittsburgh to San Francisco in the beginning of September and I was hoping people here would have some tips and advice! I will be doing this trip solo. I was thinking I would need about 5 days to comfortably complete the trip, what do you think? I would like to make this as fun as possible. Where should I stop along the way, what are the great landmarks and attractions that I should see? Any suggestions for interesting towns to stop and stay in? I'm really excited about this, I think it will be a great experience if I play my cards right! Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum -- Five days is about right if you want to drive at least nine hours per day. This is pretty close to our recommended maximum daily mileage at 515 miles. This is a community of people who love taking solo trips and so you will find lots of advice here. Here are some links to begin reading:

    Birdybird's first solo adventure
    Tips about camping for solo travelers
    Moderator Judy's tips (she is a serious solo tripper...)
    Jillian's tips (another solo woman traveler)

    The fastest and most direct route would be I-80 and while there are some really beautiful places to see enroute (including these wonderful places for day-walks...) I would suggest that you drop south to I-70 (stop and see the St. Louis Arch) and the use I-70/US-50 to cross the magnificent Colorado Rockies and then follow the old sections of the historic Lincoln Highway into California. This route might require the addition of a day or so...
