My husband and I are planning a two week trip from Austin to Sacramento at the end of July. This will be our first road trip together out of Texas, and we are not sure of what the most scenic routes are. We definitely want to stop by the Grand Canyon and the San Diego Zoo on the way, but other than that, we are not sure of what other sites would be worth stopping at. I love dramatic scenery, and he loves anything which historical significance to it. Any suggestions? What are some little known, but beautiful beaches to look at?
