I am making a solo trip from Atlanta, GA to Flagstaff/Cornville, AZ. I have looked at previous posts on this forum and numerous individuals have indicated it takes to 3-4 days to travel by car. Knowing that this is a solo trip does anyone have any recommendations of where I could stay such as hostels, safe locations for motels/hotels that are relatively cheap, or places in general to rest? I planned on taking I-40 through Memphis, Little Rock, Oklahoma City, Albuquerque, and on.
Also, what about recommendations for National Parks, places to eat, and visit that run in junction with I-10 & I-40?
This is my first long distance by myself, so any helpful advice would be appreciated.
Thanks for your help!
