We (2 or 3 boys) plan to have a road trip (one way) from boston, and we have around 10 days (from around December 29 to January 7). Our original plan is to rent a car, drive to New Orleans, or LA, and fly back to Boston. However, there seems not so many scenic sites along the east coast as west, and it could be unwise to drive a long way to LA during winter time. Could you give me some ideas or suggestions? We want to experience scenic nature and different cities. Thank you all.
