I am new to the site and was hoping to gain some quick insight for an upcoming road trip I am taking. In a cross-roads of my career path decision I have decided to take the upcoming break( school teacher) as an opportunity to take a road trip and hopefully figure out what is ahead for me. I am from New Jersey and my ultimate destination is New Orleans. With 10 days total available for this trip I am hoping to take in a scenic and "country" route. Does anyone have any suggestions on "breathtaking" destinations or must see sights? Whether it be particular highways through the mountains, national state parks, or just scenic and historic towns along the way.
The idea of this trip is to help me figure out what to do in my future so if you have any particular locations or even exact locations that you visited and it gave you a spiritual experience please share!
Thank you and any input or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
To my fellow road trippers good luck!
