I'm a college student looking to go on a 2 week road trip from coast to coast with a few friends this summer.
We'll be starting from Northern DE, most likely in early August...is this a good time or would beginning of summer (end of May, June) be better?
We want to drive across the Midwest on our way to the West, probably across US-50. When we get to CA we want to hit San Fran and go south along the coast. Coming back we want cover the Southern US and possibly hit route 66 going North then take us-50 back to MD.
We don't really have much of an itinerary as of now, just want to see the prominent sights of the West (Grand Canyon, San Fran, some national parks, death valley if possible, route 66, etc.)
Do you experienced travelers have any suggestions for routes, sights, or time of year to travel? We're pretty open to anything so whatever you could add would be helpful. Thanks.
