My partner and I are just starting to plan a 2 month road trip to America next September 2016- November 2016. We are doing this instead of a wedding, our plan is to elope on the western coast and drive throughout America as part of our honeymoon.. We are both Australians who are not experienced travellers so please excuse my ignorance in this post. We are planning on starting in LAX and spend 30 days on the road to get to New York with a rental RV. From New York we have another 30 days to get back to LAX and we were looking at doing Chicago, Montana to Seattle and then Seattle to LAX. I don't know if flying or driving this part of the trip is better, I have a few concerns with driving this part of the trip as we are planning on doing this part through October - November, will the roads be okay to drive during this period? I would prefer to drive as I don't want to miss out on the scenery! My partners main priority is trying American food and beer so he is really looking forward to New Orleans and I am just excited to see the national parks and wildlife Yosemite and yellow stone are going to be on the agenda in the first 30 days. We are going to do a tour from NY to Niagra falls.
We are mainly wanting to go camping through the national parks and in the big cities to stay in hotels/ BnBs. Basically is 2 months achievable? We are really only wanting to stay 2-3 days at each city due to budget on accom, LA, Las Vegas, Denver, New Orleans Florida, New York etc.
We are both extremely excited and eager to do as much possible in the 2 months but both know that this may not be possible, we are both use to driving long distances so we aren't too concerned with spending time on the road but what the road conditions will be like during that time is making me a bit concerned as we have not driven in cold/frozen road conditions!
Thank you Heaps!
