My sister and I are taking our first road trip from southern Minnesota to Fort Lauderdale FL starting on August 4, 2012. We are planning on stoppin in St. Louis to do a little sight seeing and also in Nashville where we will stay the night and also do some sight seeing. We have plans to see the Gateway Arch, Parthenon, and Ruby Falls. We will be staying three days and two nights in Fort Lauderdale then leaving to go to Grand Bahamas Island for a few days. We will then return home. We are trying to do things budget friendly and also safely, considering this is the only time either of us have taken a road trip. If anyone has any advice for us we would really appreciate it. Perhaps cheap things to do in Fort Lauderdal or Miami and also tips on cheap parking when site seeing. Anything is appreciated!
