Hi Everyone! New to the forum! I've taken lotsa small-ish road trips as a kid. As an adult, the most recent road trips are:
- May 2010, Concord NH to Wichita Falls, TX
- August 2010, Concord, NH to Wichita Falls, TX
- September 2010, Concord, NH to Vegas, to Santa Monica, CA to Wichita Falls, TX (FUN!)
On this trip the passengers are: myself and my fiance. We are leaving SATURDAY morning, leaving Wichita Falls, TX and heading to Las Vegas. We need to be in Vegas, Monday afternoon. We are planning to leave home early Saturday morning. This is the only portion of the trip with a time constraint, being that we need to be in Vegas for Monday.
We are leaving Vegas on Friday morning and heading to Santa Monica, CA. Would LOVE input on a scenic route for that leg of the trip, again, time is not a factor for us.
Leaving Vegas, we have no hotel plans or anything. We love Santa Monica and plan on driving the Pacific Coast Highway up thru San Francisco and then to see some of the Redwoods. We have no definite day to come back to Texas. Did I mention this is our honeymoon? Yep, getting married in Vegas and then roadtripping, since it's what we both love to do.
Things we both like about road tripping: ghost towns, abandoned buildings, scenic areas, historical things. Would much rather find something cool off the beaten path than the touristy, crowded things. Love the ocean (hence, the Pacific Coastal) :)
Would love input on scenic routes, must sees, must eat at, cute lil motels to stay in (not so much into the bed and breakfast thing). We know it will be 4th of July weekend, but not so concerned. We can pretty much stop whenever, wherever.
Can't wait for the input! Thanks everyone. : )
