I am brand new to this thread, my family and I are moving to the US (I am a naitive Californian and my hubby is Brittish) we have a 7 year old daughter and are flying into JFK on the 3rd of September! We have just purchased our tickets and don't have a clue yet what to see along our route, planning hotel stays, sites to see, keeping our daughter happy and pricing petrol etc!
I plan to stop into St Louis to see my sister (it has been 5 years) then a stop in New Mexico to see my childhood best friend (its been 20 years) then onto Las Vegas to see my parents (its been 5 years) and then to settle in Arizona (mohave). We figure around 10 or so days? we already have a car rental so we just need to get there and enjoy! We arrive in JFK at 640pm so we would probably want to find a hotel fairly quick and somewhere to eat and then I reckon we shall be shattered! I have a mapped route of jfk-brooklin -staten island-new jersey-pennsylvania-maryland-Wheeling West Virginia(zanesville, columbus, springfield)-indianapollis-illinois-missouri-tulsa Oklahoma-Texas-New Mexico- las vegas and then Arizona
The rest inbetween is a real mystery!!!! anyone have any tips or advice on my plans thus far?? Cheers in advance :)
