    Not worth It

    I'm with Rick on this one. "Nobody should be tempted to take advantage of those low prices for any travel that isn't truly essential." Remember that the novel coronavirus responsible for COVID-19...

    Some Basics

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    How long it will take you to get to the Cape, and where you will stop each night largely depends on what you mean by "I plan on only driving 6 hours per...

    Earlier this evening President Trump announced that "To keep new cases from entering our shores, we will be suspending all travel from Europe to the United States for the next 30 days." I see from a...

    Not a Lot of Time to Fill

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

  10. If "We" Includes Youngsters

    All excellent advice you've gotten so far. I would just add a couple of things if the "we" referred to in your initial question includes children. First and foremost, make extensive use of the Junior...

    One other thing you need to keep in mind as you plan your trip is that in Alaska in July, there will literally be no night. The sun will set in Anchorage and (barely) in Fairbanks, but in both cases...
  12. Wilderness Adjacent

    While the stunning images of Alaska show wilderness - mountains, forests, wildlife, untamed rivers, etc., etc., etc., and indeed there are very few inter-city highways in Alaska, the fact is that...

    Much Better

    Good. "Three days (or less)" was simply a non-starter. We do get many people who come to us having first checked possible routes on Google Maps or something similar and have come away with totally...

    Three Days? No No No
