My boyfriend and I (23 and 20) are planning a road trip to Arkansas. We will be leaving from Connecticut and driving through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Missouri. We want to go through Tennessee, North Carolina and drive along the East Coast on our way home. It would be very helpful if we could get suggestions on what routes to take (I don't want to spend the whole time on the highways), cheap motels or campgrounds to stay at, and any other helpful hints as we plan our trip. Also if experienced road trippers, in their opinion, could tell us what would be the best time to go, how long they think the trip should be and about how much it might cost. Thank you.
