I want to explore the western states starting from Las Vegas since the flights to LV are less expensive than other cities and rental cars are less expensive too (starting at $25 day vs. $40 in other cities).
This road trip also serves the purpose of deciding where I might want to move to in the near future because PA is too cold and boring for me.
I only want to spend one night in Las Vegas and I might spend another night there at the end of my road trip. Iíd like to see the Grand Canyon, Denver & Boulder CO, from there go up north and make my way through Montana to Seattle, Portland, down to SF, LA and back to LV.
Thatís less than 4000 miles, it should be doable. I will be traveling by myself and I plan on staying in Hostels where possible. My budget is about $2000-$2500, $700 of that goes towards the flight and rental car.
Any suggestions or comments are welcome. Are there any sights that are must see besides of what I have listed?
What is the speed limit out there? Here in PA you can drive like an idiot and the chance of getting pulled over is slim because so many do it.
