My husband and I are from Australia. We are planning a 3 week road trip in the USA next September (2012). We have just purchased a country wide map and are now feeling completly overwhelmed.
We are reading through the forum and there seems to be so much we could be doing/seeing but we know we cant do it all.
We have been to the US a few years ago and did LA/Las Vegas/Washington DC and New York.
So far we have decided on spending a few days in Las Vegas/Grand Canyon (as we didnt get there last time due to dust storms) and a few nights at Disneyland and San Francisco.
We are in our late 20's and this is our last big holiday before we have children so we want to see as much as we can as well as have a great time.
We would love to explore the more scenic routes even if this just means stopping in a town for lunch before driving on. We both love driving so dont mind driving long distances each day especially if it meant we were stopping every few hours somewhere.
We were thinking of flying from Sydney, Australia to either Texas or LA and then flying out of LA at the end of the trip. Obviously it would be much cheaper for us to fly in and out of the same city as well as car rental.
So can anyone point us in the right direction of must see places or reccomended itineries? We are so excited and just need some help to get started. Any help is greatly appreciated
