My friend and I are in the process of speculatively planning our summer holiday next year and want to embark on a trip involving something along lines of flying to San Francisco and flying out of New York, hiring a car and making our way between the two in whichever haphazard route we can muster!
I'd be really interested and appreciative of any advice from people who have done something similar. Are there any places we should particularly try and take in? Are there any states we should avoid? Is the trip even feasible with the time and finances we have?
A bit of background info:
We are looking to do the trip in late June/early July for about 20ish days (i don't think either of us could realistically take more than 3 weeks off work at one time)
We will both be 25 years old at the time of travelling and are your fairly average British lads though we would very much like to see things that are off the traditional tourist track as well as the obvious must sees (e.g. Grand Canyon).
We guesstimated a budget of roughly £2500 - £3000 each (for EVERYTHING) would be realistic?
We don't want to 'rough it' too much but equally don't require many luxuries!
Thanks in advance for your help
