Hi, I am new on the board. I am currently planning our road trip for this spring/summer. We will be going to California from South Carolina and back. I am planning on going thru Nevada on the way to California, then on to Oregon, and going back thru Montana and the Dakotas before heading back South. That is the only plans I have so far. So I am in need of advice on where to go in between. The main places we want to visit is the Grand Canyon, Redwoods, Yellowstone , Glacier, Yosemite, and Mt Rushmore. We will be renting a car and plan on staying at hotels along the way. I am trying to decide if I should book all hotels ahead since it will be busy season. My only concern with that is how will we know how long we will want to spend in each place. I am guessing we will have to have every single day planned out ahead to make it work. I would love to hear advice on planning as I have just begun and it seems a little overwhelming. I am very excited I have 3 children that will be ages 10 and 7 at the time of travel. Any places you would suggest we make sure to see with kids? Also should we do interstates or try to stay on all scenic routes? We are planning to leave late May and hoping to keep the trip at 75 days if possible. Thanks!
