A very warm hello to you all!
We're coming from the UK in just over two weeks for our first US road trip and are incredibly excited! We fly into Miami on 9/2/14 and out of LA on 10/1/14. Our current plan is to drive from Miami to LA via Orlando (for the Kennedy Space Center), New Orleans, Huston, Albuquerque, Grand Canyon and Las Vegas.
Apart from the flights, our itinerary is fairly flexible - although we want to be in Albuquerque by Saturday 9/20/14 for the Breaking Bad Bus Tour (we're massive American tv fans).
There is sooooo much to see and so many attractions to visit, we wondered of you guys had any places that you just couldn't drive past on the route, without stopping at? If there are places that are worth a little detour for? Or if there are places that just should be driven through in haste? As well as the Space Race and American tv, we're very much into nature, arts, music and history. And classic Americana. And food.
Although we are seasoned roadtrippers in the UK, the US is on a completely different scale. So any and all thoughts and suggestions are very welcome.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
James and Jo
