Hello, guys! I'm really excited to do my first road trip in the States.
So, our first plan is to go from New York to San Francisco while paying a visit to the following cities:
- Las Vegas
- Los Angeles
Our trip is set to begin in Dec 30th '14, and, at first, we plan on leaving San Francisco by plane at Jan 23 '15. I'm from Brazil, and although I have driven in several roads around here (some in really bad shape), the only time I've driven in wintery conditions was from Regina, SK to Calgary, AB in Canada, sometime in Feb this year. I really have no clue of how are the road conditions this time of year, how many days this trip would require (visiting time included) or how many days should I reserve for bad winter. Does anybody have any on which car to get, route, attractions, time planning and so on?
Thanks in advance!
EDIT: tips about some oddball attractions along the way are really appreciated, since I love to know places that locals love. :)
