A friend of mine is doing an internship in New Orleans and the chance of a road trip seemed to good to pass up. The plans are very much in their infancy however I plan to fly in to New Orleans Late April and back from New York middle of May. I think I will want a few days in both citys however apart from that we have no real direction and personally I'm just looking to see as much of the U.S.A in a short time period as possible.
A few questions:
Is 2-3 weeks long enough for this trip? (it might have to be due to work constraints)
Is it best to drive straight to New York stopping on the way or go via the coast?
How much should we budget for the trip?
What’s the best way to sort out a hire car?
And most importantly are there any must see sights/cities along the way?
Any help/advice/ideas would be appreciated
