I have always wanted to take a road trip and just feel like it's now or never. I'm taking online classes and next semester I have to load up on courses then I'll be going to medical school, so I want to take time and do it right. I have a lot of questions that I hope you guys can answer!!
I'm starting on Long Island, and I don't have a destination yet, so please recommend places! I would like to go on a trip lasting 4 or 5 days, there and back. I just want to drive and I feel like fall is the perfect time so I would love to drive and see places with beautiful scenery around or parks or something relating to that. I want to go to places that aren't crowded or huge tourist destinations, just simple beautiful places, to clear your mind! So going to Maine and stopping at places is an idea, or going to the mountains maybe? I am open for any ideas really, just want to be able to really see what is on the road and places you would never see on any regular road trip.
Also, how much would I be looking at for this trip in terms of cost? I plan on roughing it so I don't mind sleeping in my car or at a shady motel for a night either.
Any tips would be great, I'm going to go to the book store and research tomorrow. Thanks for everything in advanced!
