Ny to la!
Hi! I'm trying to plan a round trip from ny to la! I have about 9 days and thinking I want to take the more southern route through Tennessee, Oklahoma, Arizona. We want to see the Grand Canyon and whatever else we may come across! Just trying to get a plan time wise
Best advice on planning this?
Oh and it's one way only, ny to la, cuz we will just rent a car and fly back to ny
Welcome to the RTA Forum!
9 days is a nice amount of time to do a one way trip from NY to LA. You need about 5-6 to make the drive, so you'll have some time to explore. However, you should keep in mind that a one way cross country car rental is going to add hundreds of extra dollars to your car rental costs, on top of the regular rental charge and any underage or extra driver fees that might apply.
As far as best advice - right now it is simply to figure out what it is you want to see and do. There are millions of possibilities, depending upon what you are interested in. There are lots of resources on this site to help you get some ideas, including the RTA Map Center.
Once you've got more of an idea about the things you want to see and do, then you can take the next step in putting it all together.
Start with your current plans
So far you know you want to go to LA and you want to see the Grand Canyon.
Now consider what attracted you to the southern route, into Tennessee, etc. Is there something along the way in those states that made you decide on that route? Perhaps some type of attractions that you're already thinking about seeing there? That would help us provide some advice since it would give us a little bit of information about what kinds of things you'd be interested in seeing.
Well a friend of ours lives in Nashville so wed want to go there and Memphis, maybe stop in Texas, but other than that we're not sure what wed want to see, what interesting places r there to see on the southern route and is 9 days enough?

You've also been told how to go about finding some of the millions of interesting places along the way that might be of interest to you.
But this is not a full-service travel agency. This forum is a great place to get help planning your trip, but we can't do the work for you. At this point you still haven't even given us a silver of information (like answering Tim's questions or giving us examples of places that you have found that you want to stop) to even provide us with a real starting point. That's really the bare minimum for this forum to be of any help.
