I've been reading thru this forum for information on a road trip, so I thought I'd share:
My GF and I (and our cat) are moving from Jersey City to San Diego in April, and plan on taking a liesurely drive cross-country. It is the ideal road trip situation as we have no time constraints and a brand new CRV (although I think 3 weeks will probably be the max we can handle on the road).
Currently, our trip stops are planned as such:
Jersey City > Philly > pit stop at Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater > Cleveland > Chicago > St. Louis > Kansas City > Denver > Grand Canyon > Las Vegas > San Diego
I think the longest leg is KC to Denver so we will probably have to stop short of Denver for the night.
We are more city people, with design backgrounds (i'm an architect, she a graphic designer) so we would love to hear about any cool buildings, museums, restaurants, etc, but also I don't want to disgregard the outdoors either, so any comments, suggestions, or ideas for outdoor stuff is welcome too.
also if anyone has any tips for traveling w/ a cat that would be helpful too (other than the obvious need for pet friendly hotels). =)
