Just stumbled upon this brilliant website and I've been reading posts for about 2 hours now! I'm at the very early stages of planning a roadtrip with my other half, although the idea has been in our minds for well over a year...
I have done a lot of backpacking (RTW and round Europe) but never a road trip style adventure so just looking for a bit of advice. I know this a very general post but any tips would be welcome.
We are thinking (Ok I say we, I am booking this as a surprise) of flying into LA late May in 2015. We have about 3 weeks and want to see as many amazing places as possible. I think our original plan was to make our way up as far an Vancouver so I guess that's probably my first question, is 3 weeks sufficient enough to drive to Vancouver from LA, without driving all day every day, and having time to take in lots of exciting places?
Secondly, I cannot seem to work out where to stop off in between, I've read so many posts now I just want to visit everywhere but clearly that's not possible. I think LA would be a short stop, I've been there once before and it didn't really interest me much, but it would be the cheapest place to fly into/ out of.
I think Vegas/ the grand canyon are must sees, however I am not sure if this would be worth saving for another trip? (Hell who knows, maybe he will surprise me with a trip there for my 30th in a few years time!). apart from that, I am literally clueless. I've got a few books on my kindle to get through for inspiration!
So I guess my questions are does 3 weeks sound feasible, and has anyone done a similar trip and can suggest what to do/ where to avoid? Again sorry for the vagueness, but like I said, very open plan at the moment!!!
Thanks in advance
