My fiance' and I have decided we want to take a trip from Dallas, Tx to the West Coast, (7/7/12 -7/19/12). We are traveling with our 8 yr old nephew. We have twelve days from start to finish. We are on a very limited budget. Since we have our nephew, what would be the shortest route, that we can still see sights, and budget friendly overnight stays.
Fiance' and I will just be glad to have the time off together, quite stress free drive, and of course the sights. I have heard that the San Diego Zoo and Legoland will be places for our nephew to enjoy.
Suggestions on how far to drive daily without being tired at the end of the day, and without boring the heck out of the 8 yr old.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
BTW, did I say we have never done a road trip ever :-)
