Thread: Florida To Utah

  1. Default Florida To Utah

    Planning a Road-trip from Florida to Utah, moving for college so its one way. Ive never driven west so I've never been to the Grand Canyon or anything, and I honestly don't even know where it is located exactly. Route suggestions? Cities worth exploring? Way-points? Any cool stops, national or state parks, hot springs, interesting food, places to camp(cause I am a near broke student) etc.

    Default Research needed.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    The first thing I would recommend is getting hold of a good map and doing some research. There are thousands of options available to you and nobody knows what appeals to the most more than you do.

    Look around the forums and road trip planning pages above [the Map centre is good for routes and attractions] and when you have a few dots on the map we can help to fine tune your trip, but you need to take the first steps. Florida to Utah is a pretty big target area and not knowing your start and finish point, what interests you and how much time you have for the journey doesn't make it any easier making meaningful suggestions.

    Enjoy the planning and when you have some ideas let us know !

    I was thinking I-10 from Florida through to Arizona, then I-17 once I hit Phoenix until Flagstaff, then Highway 89 from there to I-15 in Utah. So along the way, New Orleans, Houston, San Antonio, El Paso, Las Cruces, Tuscon, Phoenix, Flagstaff, and anywhere interesting in between, I was just hoping for some small interesting places along the way, good food or anything.

    Up Hwy 89 into Utah, you'll pass through Lake Powell (breath-taking scenery) and, if you plan it that way, Zion and Bryce Canyon NP's. Both of those are gorgeous as well.

    Tucson (c comes before the s) has Saguaro National Park in two sections - the really thick section (west) and the really old section (east; or is it the other way around?). There is also the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, which teaches you in a fun way about desert life.

    Phoenix has a Frank Lloyd Wright home near Scottsdale, and the Lost Dutchman Mine area east of town. North of Phoenix, before Flagstaff, you have Montezuma's Castle (an Indian ruin) and Sedona and Oak Creek Canyon. Of course, west of Flagstaff is the Grand Canyon.

    Houston has the NASA Johnson Space Center.

    These are just off the top of my head -
