    Plan Ahead

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    At a workmanlike pace, this trip would take about eight days, so having budgeted ten days you can plan on making a few short stops each day to keep the...
  2. It's Not That Far

    Gettysburg is roughly an hour-and-a-half drive from Lancaster via US-30, a fairly scenic drive with a few small towns along the way. Gettysburg itself and the Military Park comprising the battlefield...
  3. Three Overnights

    At roughly 1,850 miles, your trip is too long to try to do in just three days but should be relatively comfortable to do in four days. That means you're looking for three evenly-spaced overnight...
  4. The Simple and Direct Answer

    The most straightforward route is to simply get on I-10 in Phoenix, take that to western Texas then follow I-20 when it splits off. I-20 will take you the rest of the way to Atlanta. You're going to...
  5. A Few Thoughts

    I think you've got a nice trip laid out, not overly rushed and still with plenty to do. I will simply offer a couple of random observations...

    While you can certainly make it from Lancaster to...

    A Loop is a Loop is a Loop

    If where you're returning the rental car is a consideration, and it always should be, then it doesn't matter logistically where you fly in to/out of. You're going to be driving the exact same number...
  7. A Relatively Uncommon Symbiosis

    When the Interstate Highway System was built, it largely followed previously well-worn footpaths, wagon tracks, farm-to-market roads, and the US Highway System. They all followed the contours of the...
  8. Time Keeps Slippin' Away

    As Dave and travelingman have pointed out, it's quite possible that your nine day RoadTrip could easily become as little as six and a half days by the time you take into account the pick-up, drop-off...

    Interests?

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    As with any RoadTrip that has extra time for sight-seeing, the sights you see depend as much on your interests as they do on what's available. So let's...
  10. Signs, Signs, Everywhere(?) the Signs...

    OK - I'm showing my age with that title but I noticed something on my own recent RoadTrip: Signs seem to be disappearing! I guess it's now just assumed that everyone has GPS for navigation and...
  11. I Think We Have a Winner

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Given your list of requirements and desires for this trip, frequent breaks from driving, scenic, and avoiding city traffic, I think the clear winner...
  12. For the Record

    RoadTrip America does NOT encourage or even condone driving over 900 miles in a single day. I will simply note that if you were a professional driver with decades of experience, such a drive would be...
  13. For My Money

    There are really only two basic routes for you and fortunately neither goes through California. They are also within a hundred miles of each other in terms of length and they would both take about...
  14. Necessity...

    ...is the mother of acceptance.

  15. It's All Gorgeous

    To be perfectly honest, there will be relatively few choices of which roads to drive since there are very few roads connecting the dots of your trip., but I don't know of any non-scenic roads in the...
  16. Another Thing About Generic 'Must See' Sites

    The real problem with broad, unspecified requests for attractions to visit is that following such a list, and there are plenty of them out there, is that following them will almost certainly result...

    The Phrase that Comes to Mind

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Thanks for sharing your experiences. Most of the regulars here have had similar ones, but those misadventures did not dissuade us from pursuing other...
  18. Some Starter Ideas

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    I like your idea of taking different routes out and back; its one thing I always try to do on my own RoadTrips. Also, I suspect that since you'll be...
  19. Besides the Strip

    Just because you happen to be in Vegas, there's no need to stay in Vegas. Just outside town are a few scenic natural sites, even if they aren't national parks, such as Red Rock Canyon National...
  20. Don't Overlook the Obvious

    In Colorado, just southeast of Grand Junction, there's the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. Then between Grand Junction and Las Vegas, you're going to be driving within very easy side-trip distances of...
  21. Visalia to Kingman

    This is another route where knowledge of the road types should alleviate some stress. At 415 miles and with a two vehicle caravan that includes a truck, straight to the point seems the way to go....

    Personally...

    As with everything here, it's up to you - That's the point of a roadTrip rather than a tour or cruise where somebody else determines your itinerary. All anyone here can do is tell you what they would...
  23. 'Best' is a State of Mind

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    As you read around other people's posts and our responses, you'll see over and over again that in our opinion there is simply no single 'best' route for...

    Worth the Twenty Bucks or So

    If you are going to be spending a lot of time on non-Interstate roads (not necessarily 'back' roads, but even some older US and state highways) you'll need a road atlas that shows where low clearance...

    Just a Short Note on the Kancamagus

    Great Road! First, it's pronounced Kan-ka-MANG-us (with an 'n'). If you can, drive it from west to east, from Lincoln to Conway. It's a long steady climb from the east side to the top of the pass,...
