  1. Default New family roadtrip

    Hello there, I live in London with my husband and our three month old baby. We are planning on moving back home to New Zealand for the end of October, but thought that we would have a holiday on the way home and go on an American road trip.
    We have family in Boston and San Francisco and will have about three weeks to do this is. My question is if this is a ridiculously short amount of time to drive across the country enjoyably? Would we be better to have mini-road trips on either coast?
    Many thanks for any advice and great website!

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    3 weeks is plenty of time to make the trip cross country, but its not nearly enough time to see everything (of course the same could be said about a 3 month or even a 3 year trip).

    It takes about a week to drive straight across the country if you are just going to get there, so that would leave you 2 full weeks to stop and explore things along the way. That is a very healthy amount of time to get a good cross section of things in the US.

    Now if you really want to see things in California and New England, then your other option to do small roadtrips from each location is a good one two. That would give you a lot more time to look at the many things that are in those specific areas, but of course you'd be leaving out everything in the middle.
