Hello! My husband and I are moving out to San Francisco in April and will be driving from Toronto. We are not entirely sure the best route to take. We essentially have an unlimited amount of time to get there (though we would like to be able to make the trip in a week or less), and are interested in seeing some sights on the drive. Some potential cities of interest are Denver, CO, and Salt Lake City, UT, but we're quite flexible. We don't want to do much more than 9 hours of driving a day, and we also want to make sure we're staying in safe cities/hotels as we'll have a car packed with all of our things! Are there any suggestions for a good route to take, good cities to stay overnight in, etc? Also, I'm unsure as to whether we should book our hotels ahead of time or not....
Any suggestions are greatly welcomed!
