My friend (both Australian) and I are planning a road trip in late March, from NYC to LA, but we only have 10 - 11 days.
We would like to see some sites along the way, so really want to know which states and towns to drive straight through and which ones to spend some time in.
We want to see must-see American sites as well as getting a taste of the everyday. Classic roadside diners, bars etc.
We particularly want to go through the deep South to get a taste of the America we've never seen. Thinking tenatively Washington DC, Virginia, N and S Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Georgia, Alabama, Mississipi, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, Utah, Nevada.
Would love to hear:
A. whether that's doable in 10 days
B. if it's the best route
C. which places to stop in and which places to drive straight through.
P.S. any suggestions on cheap one-way car rental would be appreciated too!
