I am planning a trip from southern Vermont to northern California and am a novice at this. I want to see Washington DC, the Outer Banks of NC, Columbia (South Carolina), New Orleans, Austin, and the Grand Canyon, and then take Highway 1 in CA.
Advice on the most scenic way to travel between these places, good sites to see, camping, food must-haves.... basically any information would be greatly appreciated! Money is fairly tight and I have about 17 days to complete the trip, give or take a few.
Thanks so much!
