So I am Vegas bound in September for a few days from London and shortly after that my girlfriend will fly over as it is her 30th and she would like to spend that in Miami. My first thought is ROAD TRIP! I love America, I love cars and I love a road trip, diner food, visiting random places - sounds perfect to me. Slightly less perfect for her I imagine, hence the post.
While I do not want to rush the trip - I equally cannot expect her to spend 7 days around her birthday hopping from one place to the next and I still want to get a good amount of time in Miami to relax.
With that in mind... how would you suggest I go about this? Are there parts of the trip slightly less exciting than others that I could fly rather? Or perhaps not start in Vegas, but fly somewhere first then start the drive. Are there sections that could be done by train quicker?
Perhaps the thing to start with is what are the must see bits between Vegas and Miami or MUST drive roads... then I can start to plan around that.
Thanks in advance!
