My hubbie and I are leaving San Francisco on 8th September (after three nights there) and travelling this planned route:
Amarillo (via Albuquerque, although not to fussed about it)
this is as far as we've got! obviously we may have to stop over in places along the way. We have estimated that we will have roughly 12 days left, we leave from Miami and would like to go to the Florida keys first for a night or two.
Any suggestions on Nasville to Florida?
We were thinking of going to Washigton DC first, or even up to Niagara Falls, then DC, then Florida - do you think this is doable? or are we being over ambitious? this is our first road trip across the states (we are from Wales, UK) although we both drive so we can share it.
Also, we hoped to do Monument Valley, I'd love to hear suggestions on how to incorprate that after the GCanyon before heading to Amarillo???? We do not plan to book hotels in advance, do you think it would be a problem in the area in mid Sept?
Finally (sorry! best to ask it all at once) any tips or advice on car rental? The best quote I've had for 32 days (ok it is for a convertible!) is £958.00/$1341.00.......and then the dreaded one way drop fee!!!! which is $250.00 paid locally (not too bad!)
Thanks in advance for your help and advice.
