I am a woman in a wheelchair travelling from the CA central coast to Massachusetts with my non driving 15 yr old daughter. I have driven cross country before(but not as the sole driver) and have driven solo from San Francisco to Seattle and back.
My daughter has visited and seen a lot of the east coast but never drove cross country before so I want her to see some of the prettiest or most fun sights. Right now I am thinking of going across AZ to Santa Fe(to visit friends) and will gradually make my way north east from there. Does anyone one know how much extra time this will add to the drive and also what is my best route from Santa Fe to Massachusetts. I want to pass through pretty scenery and interesting spots, but since I drive with full hand controls, I would like to leave the perilous switchback mountain type drives to my husband who is joining us for the return trip.
Would I do best going northto Colorado to hit Rt 70 and cut of north somewhere in western PA(I grew up in the east HATE the I-95 corridor) or would it be a more interesting trip to go through part of Texas, OK, possible stop at Graceland then shoot for northeast from there?
