  1. Default Planning first road trip from East Texas to NYC

    We are planning our first road trip from East Texas to NYC in October. We will have 10-12 days total, with 4 days spent in the city.
    We have seen much of the south, so would like to see the fall colors and visit some historic and ancestral sites (North Carolina, Pennsylvania) along the way. I've printed many of Peter Thody's articles that are very helpful.

    Any advice, thoughts, suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Default Some Particulars Would Help

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    We like to give advice that is both meaningful to you and to the wider reading public, but mostly to you. To that end, we could really use some more specific information on where in ‘east Texas’ you’re starting out from, where in North Carolina and Pennsylvania you might be stopping, and when in October you will be traveling. All of those details will help us give you specific information on routes and timing that will be useful to you rather than the same generic advice that you can get anywhere.

    Also, is this 10 to 12 days total for a round trip and 4 days in NYC? That doesn't leave you all that much time for sightseeing, because it's a 3 day drive via fastest route from anywhere in Texas to NYC without sightseeing.
