I first want to say that I'm really happy that there is such a forum where people can share helpful advice for others when they head out on their road trips. I just graduated at Arizona State and I luckily got a great job out in Boston. I also just got a new car and I'm planning to leave next Tuesday and hopefully arrive by Friday early afternoon.
So according to Google maps, my 39 hour trip goes as follows:
Phoenix - Alberqurque - Oklahoma City - St. Louis - Indianapolis - Columbus - Cleveland - Buffalo - Syracuse - Albany - Boston
I really want to say that I want to drive 12 hours each day and make my Friday morning an easy 3 hour drive into Boston. I've never done anything like this before so my questions I have for all of you are:
- What are the best places to get a hotel? Should I be shooting for a small town or actual city? I'm sure small towns have the cheapest prices but as for safety, comfortability, reliability.
- Is driving 12 hours a day really doable?
- Since I have some pretty cool cities to go through, any recommendations on siteseeing?
Thank you guys so much for all of your help!
