I am planning my first Road trip around North America and was looking some help on places to go and things to see and do. We are four 21/22 year old males from Ireland just out of university. We were planning going out for a couple of months and staying in San Francisico, therefore having a home address to make it easier to rent/purchase a 2nd hand RV. We are planning to go from San Fran to Los Angeles, Las Vegas (via route 66) to chicago, jersey shore, New York, Atlanta, Miami, New Orleans, tampa and then get a flight from Tampa to Cancun for Spring Break. We also hoped to make the Beer Pong World series in vegas and the superbowl in New York (2014) which are a month apart (Jan and Feb) therefore giving us some time at the cities inbetween. We are looking a mix of things to do, such as theme parks, attractions and sightseeing and have already planned on going to the more obvious 1's such as grand canyon, golden gate bridge, empire state building etc but are there anything else that would be worthwhile visiting. We are also wondering would it be worthwhile going from Los Angeles to Las Vegas via route 66 and sacricing an extra couple of days in chicago or just go the quickest possible route? As it will be a bit of a partying road trip, is there any big nightclubs in any of the main cities that are a 'must do'? Also is there any City i have missed out that we should consider?
Any Help would be greatly appreciated.
(Also I am planning the road trip for Nov/Dec 2013 to March 2014)
