I'm looking at doing a road trip from Vegas to NYC this spring and would love to call on the expertise of anyone who knows about this route or has travelled something similar.
I'm very interested in finding quirky places and people to see when on my journey - I'm an author writing/researching a book. In particular I would like to know of any hot cabaret or jazz spots or unmissable landmarks.
I've never done a long range road trip before - what length of time should I block off to do this drive?
Is this something safe for a sole female traveller to do? I will need to stay at a variety of cheap-ish hotels/motels along the way... should I bring a co-pilot?
Finally, any recommended routes would be much appreciated.
Thanks and happy new year.
