We are from the UK and as retirees planning our next "big trip" to be from west to east USA over a 6 week period from early september to mid october. We've done similar before in New Zealand but the scale was a little smaller!
Fixed points are starting in San Francisco and ending in Boston.
Accommodation would be a mixture of cabins ( if open then ) , motels and when needing some luxury even hotels!
We plan to use a hire car for a large part and AMTRAK for some longish hauls.
We have pencilled in;
Yosemite ; Monterey ; Pacific highway ( a bit of it ! ) ; Las Vegas ; Bryce / Grand Canyon ; Monument Valley ; Mt Rushmore ( ?? ) ;
Denver ; Chicago ; Washington DC ; Kentucky / Appalachians ; New York ; New England.
Advice welcomed on booking cabins ; motels ; any obvious pitfalls in our plans ( Denver to Washington section probably all AMTRAK if available )
All advice and comments welcome!
Mike and Felicity
