So I finally can take our family cross country roadtrip in July for 14 days. This is the plans tell me what you guys think. It will be me and my wife driving (mostly me). My 5 year old and 15 year old sons. We will be driving my wife's 2008 mazda cx-9 that has plenty of room for the kids. We take long roap trips up and down the east coast about 3 times a year. Kids are great on these trips!
Day 1 Philly-Mid Ohio 7 hours
Day 2 Ohio-Mid Kansas stop in St. Louis for the arch 14 hours
Day 3 Kansas-Zion National Park stop in vail,co 14 hours
Day 4 Zion- Grand Canyon North rim stop in bryce canyon 3 hours
Day 5 Grand Canyon-Vegas 5 hours
Day 6 Vegas-Yosemite 7 hours

*We have a extra day in here to either rest or do san diego, also could take out Yosemite cause it is 8 hours off track if we need to catch up days. All hours listed are drive times between locations. Roughly 7,000 miles and a budget of $10,000 for gas, hotels, & activities.
