Hi, me and my girlfriend are planning a road trip from New York to San Francisco the next august, the whole month, and living in Italy we don't exactly know how to plan it. We've looked at a lot of italian site that talk about that, but all the budget esteem looks way lower than the real life. So i'm asking some help to evaluate it properly.
The places we'd like to go are:
New York (3 days)
Toronto (not necessary)
Cedar Point (not necessary, but i'm a rollecoaster fan)
Salt Lake City (not sure if it's interesting, but on the way)
San Francisco (3 days)
We have 28 days to spend in the USA.
Do you think the places are well planned? Any other suggestion on places to see on the way, or places in the list not worth the visit? Wich place need more time to visit and wich needs just half a day?
The distance is 5000 miles, so it should become 6000-6500 considering deviations, local trips and so on, and the extimated budget is:
1500$ car rent (small car, we are two)
1000$ tickets, etc
Do you think it's an appropriate budget for two persons in one month? We could camp to save some money, but we're not into free camping so i don't really know how much could we spend that way...
Any advice would be very appreciated!!
