    Default Thousands of options.

    Hi, and Welcome to the The Great American RoadTrip Forum.

    Many of us never book accommodation, and end September when school is back and the tourist season is winding down, you should not have problems. However, if you wish to stay in National Parks, or any other 'special' accommodation, it may be an idea to check availability before hand. I know National Park accommodation fills up very quickly.

    As for must sees... well, we really don't do must sees. The beauty is that you can design your own trip, and make it uniquely yours by including those attractions and places which are of greatest interest to you. With a trip of this scope, you have literally thousands and thousands of attractions to choose from, as well as many hundreds, if not thousands of routes from which to choose.

    So what are your interests? What is the purpose of the trip? What are you looking for?

    The best thing you can do right now is get out some quality maps or a good road atlas, and start looking at your options. Once you have the dots on the maps of your must sees, the experts here can help you fill in the gaps and suggest any tweaking.

    Enjoy the planning.
