I, (with wife and 2 boys 16 and 10) am planning on visiting this great country in May/June 2012 (4-5 weeks) for the first time and would welcome your thoughts on how to maximize on time available to us.
It is my intention to either fly in to Los Angeles or Miami, purchase a RV for the trip and when completed, load it on to a ship (Jacksonville or Los Angeles) for returning it to Australia. Which would be best direction for this trip? East or West?
The points of interest would so far include NASA, New York, Niagra Falls, Memphis, Grand Canyon, Route 66, Las Vegas and Los Angeles.
This is where I am hoping that some of you may be able to provide advice on the practicality/timing/mapping of this trip. Of course there must be many other attractions that we should include and hoping that you may be able to fill in these voids.
I look forward to any advice. Thanks in advance.
