We are planning a road trip next year as the title says from Washington to SF, i've tried to read as many threads on this route as possible but just wanted to get your knowledgable verdicts on it. Our first part of the route would be:
Nashville (via Appalachian and Great Smoky's)
At this point we're not sure whether to head down to New Orleans for a day or so then head West from here and up to Santa Fe, or just carry on from Memphis across to Santa Fe. The final part of the journey will then be something like:
Las Vegas (via Grand Canyon)
San Francisco (trying to get to Death Valley and Yosemite somewhere along the way)
Any input regarding the diversion to New Orleans would be most appreciated and obviously any hints or tips on must see's along the way.
Thanks in advance
