I'm moving from NJ to LA and am driving by myself. I plan on taking 8 days to do it and have figured out 2 possible routes. Would love your opinion and which might be better suited for me.
So a few things:
- Sedona is a must - this is not an option
- I'm 35 and F - safety is important
- I don't have a lot of time to stop on side trips so scenery while driving is important
Here are the 2 trips I put together:
NJ -> Columbus -> St. Louis -> Salina, KS -> Denver -> Moab -> Grand Canyon -> Sedona -> LA
NJ -> Columbus -> St. Louis -> Oklahoma City -> Albuquerque -> Sedona -> LA
I guess I'm wondering if driving along Route 66 is more worth it than visiting 2 other awesome national parks.
An opinions and suggestions are greatly appreciated!
