    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    That sounds like a pretty amazing trip. How much time do you have available?

    Austin to San Diego is a long drive. You really need to plan for at least 2 overnight stops for safety, but there is no shortage of places you can explore along the way. Here are some favorites from a previous discussion.

    There are lots of other National and State Parks in between the places you've listed, although your list is quite city focused, so that could make it tough to find good camping options. How much else you can add will depend a lot on how much time you have to work with though.
