I would love some advise please. We are planning a road trip to the US (first time in US) with a one year old baby and want to hire a motorhome in San Francisco and spend about 2 months driving (3 – 4 hours average a day) through the US.
We are not that interested in cruising through big cities but rather want to see natural sites etc. Our initial plan to is SF, Yosemite, Death Valley, Las Vegas Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon, Sedona, Zion National Park…then a bit stuck. Seems we have two options:
Option A – head north: ….Salt lake city, Yellowstone, Sundance, Minneaplois, Milwaukee, Chicago, Boston, Cape Cod, Bridge Port, New York, Allen Town, Washington, Orlando, Miami.
Option B – head south: ….Santa Fe, New Orleans, Miami, Washington, New York.
Note that the cities listed above aren’t necessarily our stopping points but are rather the waypoint in the software I am using to generate the route (Microsoft Streets & Trips). We plan on doing things along the route between these waypoints (for example, great lakes etc).
Does anyone have any comments on either options? We will start in mid April. Advice so far has arguments for Option A that the trip is more beautiful and interesting than Option C, that Louisana etc has not been sufficiently rebuilt from the hurricane. Arguments against option A seem to be long distance drives (remember we are driving with a one year old)…..would love to hear some other thoughts on either route.
