We are a Danish family going on a hopefully fantastic roadtrip across the US from Miami to Vancouver. After spending some time looking through the forum we just bought a Rand McNally 2016 Road Atlas.
Our first stop is Orlando beginning of April where we have done a house exchange for a week. Our initial thought was to drive through southern states via New Orleans, Austin, Albuquerque, Grand Canyon, San fran and then going up along the coast to Seattle and Vancouver. (After this we will fly to Toronto and do a cirquit of the french part of Canada and northeastern US ending in NYC where we fly back to Denmark after 17 weeks). If needed we could add some more weeks the the road trip.
We are travelling with our 5 year old twins and along the way we hope to make som more home exchanges to have a base for a week not being 'on the road'.
Is there a 'route that people take' that we should consider instead of the one sketched - we are in the very early part of planning so nothing's fixed yet beside the startpoint and end so we are open to suggestions. The route-planner on this side seems to suggest a much more northern route. This would mean not going to Grand Canyon (I have been there but my wife hasn't so I guess it would have to be a pretty solid argument :-). We will skip LA-area since we have been there before.
Best regards - Morten from Denmark.
