Hi all! I'm doing a coast to coast move and planning on hitting the road first week of July with the wife and 10-yr old daughter. I have 14 days to complete this trip and as such would like to hit some nice spots i.e. national parks, historical sites and pretty much anything fun. As this is our first time to drive coast to coast, I really need some advice and tips from everybody here. By the way, I need to be on station in VA Beach NLT 15JUL. Lastly, any tips on where to spend the 4th of July? I think we'll either be in UT or Yellowstone by then. Should I include other states to visit like Colorado?
For now, this is my plan and the POIs to hit.
1. Las Vegas (of course =)
2. Zion national park
3. Arches Nat'l monument
5. Mt. Rushmore
6. Chicago (at least a couple of days)
7. Fort Knoxx, KY to see a friend
8. PA for some civil war stuff
9. VA Beach, VA (new duty station)
That's it. Again, any tips, pointers, and additional places to see will be greatly appreciated as I want to make this once in a lifetime roadtrip to be very memorable for all of us. Thanks so much in advance!!
