Hello all, i am new to this site and looking for help on a road trp i am doing later June / Early July Next Year.
We are planning to drive from JFK Airport to Chicago over 6 days then stay in Chicago and do the return journey in Two days.
I am just looking for advise on which routes take, as i would like the scenic options, i have been looking into this a bit. i think i found one called route 6 in Pennsylvania. Also another few things that we would like to do on the way is Cedar point and maybe Columbus Zoo.
As i am from the UK, we will hiring a car, at the moment we only have a compact car, Chevrolet avea but could upgrade to a Nissan Maxima or something similar. Now i never drove in america before but i driven abroad before. is it better to have an compact car or maybe need something a bit bigger if we are doing about 1500 miles.
Regarding accommodation is it best to book before hand, i was thinking if we didn't book before go, could end hours looking for suitable accommodation? are the motels on the road that cheap??
any advice on this trip would be much appreciated.
thank you for your time
Matt & Kayleigh
