In the beginning stages of planning a roadtrip with my kids, ages 7 and 8. Leaving from Seattle in middle/end of June and returning around 8/28.
I want to leave enough time to chill for a few nights here and there and want to spend no more than an average of 4 hours in the car every day. We have some dates we have to hit but other than that are pretty open.
Tentative itinerary (w/ nights in between) -- don't need to hit the cities, per se, but they are geographical benchmarks for where we want to hit. There are two weeks in end of July that are not flexible.
ferry crossing back to US or other idea....
Boston, MA (see family)
NYC, NYC on 7/19 for four days -- have reservations, business meetings, etc.
Washington, DC (two nights w/ family)
7/25 - 8/1 Nags Head w/ family)
San Antonio (a must to see grandparents for a couple days)
meander back to Seattle
Am I crazy? We drive an old LandCruiser.
