Planning a road trip from Boston to LA for early August. Traveling with one friend, both of us are experienced drivers, and we are trying to keep our expenses down. Ideally we would like to do this for a grand total of $2000 between the two of us. Please let me know if you think that is feasible.
Here's the general plan:(approximately 7 days, traveling in a 09' Nissan Altima)
Boston to Chicago
Chicago to Denver
Denver to the Grand Canyon
Grand Canyon to Vegas
Vegas to LA
We figure we should stop somewhere between Boston and Chicago to get some rest. I was thinking Scranton, PA, but that's just a thought. I'm open to all other suggestions.
Also should probably stop somewhere from Chicago to Denver. I don't know where the best place to do that is, so some suggestions would be great.
We also don't necessarily have to go through any of these cities. LA just has to be the final destination.
Thanks for the help!
- Also, highway suggestions would be awesome.
