I'm shooting for either June or July of 2011 to take a roadtrip for an undetermined amount of time. I'm saying undetermined, because I have the entire summer off and I could be gone for either 2 weeks or 12 weeks, who knows!? I'm at the very beginning of planning my route, and so far all I know is that I'd like to hit up as many national parks and attractions as possible, lol. Grand Canyon/Yellowstone/Yosemite/Redwood Forest/New York City/Las Vegas Strip/Baseball Hall of Fame are on my list so far. Obviously I will design my own route, but does anyone know of any nicely constructed or "popular" routes that fellow road trippers have driven that basically span across the entire United States? I'm just looking for something to get the ball rolling and give me some ideas. And also, does anyone know of a good roadtrip planning program? If it does NOT require internet access in order to use, then that would probably be preferred.
Also, if anyone recommends any MUST-SEE attractions, then feel free to let me know! FYI, I'm more of a landscape and natural beauty kind of guy... I'd rather see something like the Grand Canyon or Niagara Falls as opposed to going to a well-known sports arena.
