We are a couple from Norway with a plan to make a road trip from Fort Lauderdale to San Francisco in 19 days ( from 6 th of April to 25 th) We have never been in the Southern states of the U.S. and we have only slight knowledge of most places. We need help to plan our itinerary. I planned our trip on Ducati for three weeks from Norway in the South of France and Italy in no time, we made 5 500 km without a slightest glitch, so if you need help with Europe, I can help you.Please, people! Be kind to us from the North !
First thing to suggest:
We land in Fort Lauderdale and we want to rent a car and drive along the coast to some cosy beach place ( Daytona Beach ? St. Augustine? Palm Coast?) which is not too big ( hence we are avoiding Miami) and warm our frozen bones in the sun drinking margaritas for three- four days, exploring the area. :-)
Second thing suggest:
We head to New Orleans. What is the most scenic route and what is worth visiting on the way? We have no plans to visit museums, or places that require half a day. We want to get the feel of the place watching people, life and atmosphere. You know, when you park the car, go to the hotel, take the shower, change, hit the street, have a nice meal and a drink and watch the life happening just around you. :-)We would like to do the trip in two days. is it possible
Third thing to suggest:
We want to spend one day in New Orleans and hit the road to Texas.
We need to spend a day or two in Corpus Cristi ( visit relatives). Which is the best route from New Orleans to Corpus Cristi? How much time do we need to get there ? We are landing 6th of April and we promised to my uncle to be there about 13-14 the of April.
Fourth thing to suggest:
We need the best route to Las Vegas- visiting Grand Canyon and the works! We would like to spend the night in Las Vegas and then hit the road to Los Angeles, if possible avoiding it, and going somewhere smaller.
Fifth thing to suggest:
We would like to have 7 days to explore the West coast. We want to make the coastal road Big Sur and spend the few remaining days in San Fransisco. Help us to plan it, please. Is it possible ?
