First post, seems like a great forum...
I'm planning on driving cross country from LA to..... Either Pittsburgh or a small chance we'll go to Raleigh, NC and then to Pittsburgh. I'm traveling with wife and toddler (lots of DVD's for him).
I know they would be different routes, so I was hoping someone could advise which way is nicer and that might help with the decision making.
We want to do the trip in about 10 days or so. We would like to have some nice (short) stops along the way (or ever off the path a bit)... A scenic route might also be nice.
I'm really not so familiar with the US (I'm not from here), I hear Colorado is nice, but I'm use to the Swiss and Italian alps so I'm not sure if it would be a disappointment or not.
Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. If you can perhaps let me know what are the must see places along the different ways, that would be most grateful.
P.S. I was thinking of stopping by the Grand Canyon (even though it's a little out of the way) is it worth it?
