    If you take the fastest and most direct Interstate highways from LA to Boston, it's 3000 miles. This can be done in a minimum of 5 days with 12 hours or so a day on the road. Taking other roads and sightseeing will add to that. There is no "best" way to go - it all depends on what you want to see.

    Default A little research.

    Hello and welcome to the R.T.A forums!

    As glc has said there is no one "best route" and how long you want to do the journey in and what places interest you will determine the route most suited to your needs.
    If it is a return trip you can certainly look at taking a more Northern route heading out towards Denver and a more Southern route coming home through St Louis and Albuquerque. Have a look around the forums using the search function and you will find many threads covering journeys across country and when you start to build your trip let us know and we can help piece it together.
    We usually recommend travelling no more than 500-550 miles a day for multi day trips which will take 9-10 hours each day with short stops for gas and food and a stretch of the legs but not sight seeing detours.
