Myself and three others (one from the UK like me and 2 from Missouri) will be embarking on a road trip this summer and I was hoping for some advice or things to see.
Our rough route is St Louis, MO > Boulder, CO, Somewhere in Utah as a rest stop > Sequoia, CA, Los Angeles, CA, Las Vagas, NV > Flagstaff, AZ (Grand Canyon) > Santa Fe, NM, Austin, TX > New Orleans, LA, then something before returning to MO, possibly Memphis, TN.
If anyone has any must-dos for those places that would be great. We're looking to stay 2 or 3 nights in each location, staying with the American's family or friends in St Louis, Boulder, Flagstaff and Austin to cut costs. Other than that, I am looking to take roughly $3000 for gas, accommodation and general spending. We will split costs between the 4 of us, is this an appropriate amount for me?
Any help would be great, I can't wait to see this beautiful country! Thanks,
