I am in the very beginning stages of planning a road trip for my family. We are leaving West Palm Beach the first week of June. I have tons of friends all over the eastern seaboard, through Chicago, and down into the central part of the country. Our current itinerary looks like this.
West Palm Beach, FL- Christmas, FL (pit stop)- Jacksonville, Fl (Sleep over)- Savannah, GA (pit stop)-Charleston, SC (pit stop)- Jacksonville, NC (sleep over)- Richmond, VA (pit stop)- Washington, DC (pit stop)- Philadelphia, PA (sleep over)- New York City (Day in city)- Pittsburgh, PA (sleep over)-Chicago, IL (5 days sleep over)- Springfield, IL (pit stop)- Kansas City, KS (sleep over)- Joplin, MO (pit stop)- Little Rock, AK (sleep over)- Nashville, TN (sleep over)- Cleveland, GA (pit stop)- Atlanta, GA (pit stop)- West Palm Beach, FL.
This is our full itinerary including small pit stops to stretch and get out of the car for a little bit. The last leg of the trip hasn't been decided on yet, I have to figure out timing for the first part to see how much time I have to spend on the later part of the trip. My idea is to stop every 2.5-4 hours for a little fun sight seeing or whatever to just get out of the car. Sleep at night and drive during the day.
Anyone do this run before? Tips, tricks, pointers? Any suggestions on weird fun things to see off the road?
Im doing this over 18 days.
Thanks for any responses! We are excited to go on this great adventure! [/FONT]
