  1. Default Driving from Los Angeles to Cape Canaveral

    Hi All,

    DH and I, along with our dog, are taking this route at the end of December. What is a reasonable amount of time this will take? We don't plan on sight seeing much, pretty much just want to get there with as little discomfort as possible.

    Thanks!

    Default Take Your Time, The Dog Will Appreciate It

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    It's right around 2500 miles y the most direct route between Los Angeles and Titusville, so in a pinch you could make it in 4 days of 600(+) miles a day. Now while that is quite doable with two drivers who aren't going to be taking any time for sightseeing along the way. It wouldn't be exactly what I would call comfortable. If your dog is the sort that needs a fair amount of exercise or frequent 'walk' breaks during the day, then I think 5 days of 500 miles per day would be more in order. At that you'd have to be on the road 10 hours a day (including fuel, food, and rest stops) but you would have time to take some walks through local and state parks to break up your day.

    Thanks AZ! Are there any special sites we should stop at along the way???

    Since we have a dog, and that we will be doing this over the Christmas holidays, I figured we should reserve our rooms ahead of time. Do you recommend going through AAA to do this? Any other suggestions on the best way to figure out where we will be every night and how to book rooms?

    Lisa, here are some more tried and true tips about traveling with critters. Most motel chains accept and welcome pets these days.
