My partner and I are planning a road trip to America In November-December 2009 (From England) for our Honeymoon and we can both take 1 month from work. Neither of us have been to America before, so we would like to see as much as we can. Possibly just getting a taste of what the cities/areas are like and then coming back for longer holidays in the future. We don't want to feel bound by too much structure time & location-wise (i.e., like being on a tour)
We would like to start on the west coast, preferably Seattle. Then we would work our way down to LA and over to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. Ideally, we would like to either travel to Miami, then up to Boston and end our trip in New York.
At the moment, these are just our best hopes, and having read a few posts already, I think we are being too ambitious and we would happily change to more localised trip. We have agreed that we're happy to just get a taste of the cities/towns/areas and not spend days exploring. As you can tell, we could really do with some help:
1. Would, it even be feasible to drive this whole trip in 1 month (bearing in mind it'll be mid-winter) and get a feeling for the areas?
2. Would it be better to fly across America from LA to Miami? (Although we're worried we'll be missing some really beautiful parts of America by doing this)
3. What mode of transport would you recommend...RV/Motor Home, Car or Use Public Transport?
We are a bit overwhelmed and we are only in the preliminary stages of planning! We would be grateful for any help and advice.
I am really sorry if this is a repetition of other posts, I will keep looking over the other, really interesting and useful posts though. Already I have been really excited and inspired by some of the posts I have read!
