I'm planning a road trip down Route 66 from Chicago to LA and then up to San Francisco. I'm not from the states, just working in Boston for a few weeks and then heading home. I booked my ticket home from San Francisco though so that I wont have a choice but to do the road trip! Originally I was going to start off in Boston but I've decided to just fly to Chicago and start from there - it'll just save me money and time.
I'm just looking for some advice. I only have 13 days to get to San Francisco. Do you think thats enough? I figured that if its about 2600miles and I cover an average of 450miles a day a I could do it in 6 days - so 13 days should be enough to stop over and do some sight seeing here and there?
Also - how are the road tolls in the states? expensive or not? I'll also be doing it with a rented car . . . are there any things I might have to take into special consideration there? I also dont have an international drivers livense - would some states have issues with that?
Looking forward to it!!!!
