Hello, this is my first post here!
I plan to take a road trip from Boston to Los Angeles in the span of 1.5 weeks in June. I will be driving solo. I have never done anything like this before. The longest road trip I have done previously was from Chicago to Boston.
I would love to get your feedback on which routes I should take and which states I should go through.
My priorities are:
1. Scenic roads - I would love to check out beautiful mountain roads, curvy roads and etc.
2. Safety - Perhaps, I watched too many horror movies about road trips. However, I would like to avoid any places that could potentially be hostile to strangers, or driving on completely rural roads where I do not see other human beings or gas stations for hours.
3. Finally, Places I do not have to go (I have already been to these palces): Niagara Falls, Chicago, St. Louis, Grand Canyon, Sedona, Las Vegas.
4. Misc. - I have always felt conscious about my ethnicity whenever I travel to rural parts of the country. I feel a bit "uncomfortable" being in places that are ethnically conservative.
Any comments would be really appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
