Hello, I am planning a road trip next summer with two other friends. We are planning to leave around mid-July and spend approximately 3-4 weeks on the road (give or take). We are undecided where to travel. We would love to visit every state, however that would be very costly and take too much time. Ideally, from San Diego, we would like to travel east throughout the southern states. Once we reach Florida we would like to travel North along the Atlantic Coast to New York. From New York we would like to travel back West along the northern states and then travel back down to San Diego. Ultimately this route makes a rectangle throughout the United States. We are ready for the long journey and the long car ride. However, do you think this route is too ambiguous for first time road trippers? If so, could you help us narrow down our route? Or do you have any other suggestions where to travel starting from San Diego? Mainly we would like to expereince small towns, cute niches, as well as naitonal and state parks. Any other advice for our first road trip as well as any other scenic routes to take would be great! Thank you!!!!!
