  1. Default NY-New Orleans-San Francisco

    Hi all,

    My friend and I are planning a road trip from NY to SF via the South in May/June. We should make the 4500 mile trip in 32 days. It would be great to have some advice as this is our first road trip! :)

    New York
    Princeton, King of Prussia
    *One night somewhere*
    Lancaster (want to see some amish culture) *2 nights*
    Washington (maybe just a quick visit to see the white house)
    Blue Ridge Parkway
    * 3 nights somewhere*
    Charleston * 2 nights*
    Savannah * 1 night*
    * 2 nights somewhere * (maybe one in Selma, Alabama)
    Nola *2 nights*
    Natchez *1-2 nights* (want to stay in a plantation house)
    Tyler, Texas * 1 night*
    * 2 nights somewhere*
    carlsbad & Roswell *1 night*
    *2 nights somewhere*
    Grand Canyon *2 nights*
    Hoover Dam & Las Vegas *2 nights*
    Death Valley
    *2 nights somewhere*
    Morro Bay * 1 night*
    Pacific Grove * 1 night*
    Salinas, Silicon Valley & finally San Francisco *3 nights*

    We appreciate any suggestions. Is this doable at all? There's a plenty of driving but it's very difficult to take anything out either...

    Default Time Enough

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    4500 miles over 32 days is actually a very relaxed pace for a cross-country RoadTrip. You only have to average about 150 miles a day which you could do by making just one serious day's drive every third or fourth day, leaving plenty of time to see the attractions everywhere you stop. While I might spread my time out a little differently, that's a matter of taste and interests. What you should do at this point, since you have the 'big ticket items' already on your itinerary, is to start checking the various cities' own tourism websites for smaller venues to visit and to get a good set of road maps and see what's on the roads between your destinations.
