  1. Default I am taking a 12 day road trip from New York to the Grand Canyon

    I am looking for ideas on attractions and state parks we can stop at along the way. We are planning on camping for the majority of the time so if anyone has any suggestions for campsites that is also useful.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    There really are hundreds of route and attraction options to choose from and as we have no idea of your interests and who "We" is [ie, young family with Kids, retired couple etc] it really is impossible to make meaningful suggestions. Is this a one way tip or do you have to return to New York and if so, have you got 12 days in total for both ways. [You should allow 4.5 days just for a one way journey with rest stops but with no major sight seeing.]

    If it's a return trip you should be looking at a different route each way to maximise the amount of different places you go through. Certainly through Colorado and Southern Utah will offer some amazing scenery with a high number of National and State parks to choose from and some great 'driving roads' such as the 'Million dollar Highway' section of US550 in Colorado and Utah scenic 12.

    I would recomend you search the forums and trip planning resources in the tool bars above for ideas, the Map centre is ideal for checking out route options and attractions along the way, all hand picked by RTA contributors. Once you have some dots on the map and give us a little more info we will be able to help fill in the blanks and make suggestions.

    Enjoy the planning !
