    I'd highly suggest riding Amtrak north to NYC. It also stops in Washington, D.C. You won't find me saying many nice things about I-95 and it can be wicked between Richmond through north of Baltimore....

    In general the travel time estimates appear to be for a Google Robot driving a fusion-energy vehicle. Add 20 percent to the travel times to come up with more realism in the travel times and account...

    My take is 3-1/2 days of travel. That is 3 nights on the road plus a half-day driving which is great in that you will not arrive to Seattle during rush hour.

    This based on Google Maps data of 24...

    If you plan to hit Mystic, CN and Newport, RI, then my suggestion would be to use Hartford, CT or Providence, RI, as the starting airport. Cape Cod can become a traffic jam in the summer so you might...

    Sorta like using gold dust. Universal. Isn't that what the fairies used to fly (not drive)?

    Whichever route you take be prepared for a ton of trucks on the highways. Despite all the news of being short 100K truck drivers it seems busier than ever. With so many trucks out on the...

    AZBuck's suggested route makes good sense. I just completed an I-81 segment from Maryland to North Carolina, and it was terrible. Tons of truck traffic, more than in past years, which just made it a...

    For tires you could order on-line for delivery to your mechanic.

    Costco also carries quality tires--I usually buy their Michelin for a number of reasons--but I have my...

    There is a good supply of towns and motels/hotels along I-90. The main thing is to not try getting the extra hour driving west where the storm is coming from as the distance-rate happens so quickly...

    Yup, I-80 is subject to high winds even in clear sky conditions. On one trip across I-80 in WY, I thought my vehicle alignment had gone bad for two hours!

    At least while you are driving East you...

    The highly cynical part of me is firing up. Yes, that is a more complicated system for finding a window to book and is so far out in advance. How does 12 or 13 months make it less congested or...

    Monterey to Anaheim is a long drive and even using the fastest route probably pops you into the greater LA area during rush hour. It might make more sense to drive that route over two days and exit...

    For years Fredericksburg was the demarcation zone but during the past few years it seemed to have expanded to south of Richmond.

    Just to add, the 550-600 mile drive in a day is a "stretch goal," but not something I would plan for more than two days on a cross-country drive. Many other factors come into play, e.g., traveling...

    Hello,
    You won't need a vehicle while in Washington, D.C. Actually, you will want to avoid having a vehicle. Walking and use of the metro will be the best way to get around. There isn't a direct...

    If time/days are not pressing and you are willing to add a couple hundred miles, another option would be traveling via Flagstaff, AZ to Page, AZ via US 89, continuing on US 89 to I-15 in Southern...

    Traveling across country takes time. Short of having enough time I have learned it is better to fly to a spot and drive a round trip from there (to the same city I flew into). Living on the East...

    Lifey, I don't envy you. Yes, there are tons of options out there but each has its own set of benefits and costs. Many times you can rent a "midsize" vehicle and select a minivan in the midsize area....
