    Default Seriously ?

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    11 days to cover over 7000 miles, or 650 miles a day ! If your idea of a "fun" honeymoon is spending 11 or 12 hours a day in a car, every day, and watch the world go by through the windscreen , you will be fine. For most it would probably end in divorce !

    Time for a rethink me thinks !

    Still dreaming, sorry. You need at least 3 weeks for that drive if you are going to see anything other than the road through your windshield.

    Default When 'less ' is 'more'.

    To spend half of your days driving and half of them relaxing, whether it be 5 hours of each per day or 10 hours one day and a rest the next, it really limits you to a trip of 3000 miles, and to be honest that is pushing the limits of what I would consider a "fun Honeymoon". Think quality and not quantity and select places where you can relax and enjoy your surroundings. With the time you have available and if you want to head to the West coast, I would recommend going from home across country to LA or SF without heading North and South as well. You could follow the path of I40 or I70 depending on what appeals to you and spend some time in places like Rocky mountain NP, Grand canyon, along the Pacific coast and/or Vegas and just getting off the Interstates along the way.
