    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    "Varied Interests" doesn't really give us anything to work with. What kinds of things do you have in mind already, to give us some kind of guidance about the trip you are looking for.

    If you don't have even those basics yet, then you need to spend a little more time reading and researching. Here are some popular trip ideas for the west coast, and of course, the RTA Map Center, and simply searching around this site can give you some ideas.

    Once you've got a foundation, we can help you build upon it.

    Default What are you looking for?

    As well as interests, what is the purpose of this trip? what do you all hope to achieve? Have you sat down with the family and discussed this... maybe with a large map of the US close at hand, some good books and the RTA resources.

    Kids might be teens, but there is a great difference between the interests of a 13 year old and an 18 year old.

    Default Hotels/Motels or possibly camping.

    Sitting down with the family and planning your roadtrip together can be great fun, and everyone will then have a vested interest and more enjoyment while you are actually on the road. If you feel a little adventurous and the outdoors is 'your thing', with a family of 6 to accomodate it could be one of the times where an RV could be a more budget friendly option. It's not cheap once you consider high fuel consumption and camground fees and they are not great in the City, but if you are thinking more along the lines of Grand canyon and Yosemite rather the the Citys, it can be a wonderful 'Lifestyle' choice for a family.

    As said, once you have laid the foundation of the trip we can offer meaningful suggestions, but start by making it your trip.

    Enjoy the planning !
