Right now a friend and I are planning a trip from Anchorage, AK where we live to see the lower 48. We will have three months to do this and are looking for for advice on cool places to see and things to do. And how much we need to save up. We don't intend to stay in every state for very long, but we don't want to bypass anything important either. We really want to hit up Pennsylvania, Illinois, and Colorado to see family there. Any suggestions on the best route and things to do along the way would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for the help.
