  1. Tbd

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    The two possible routes you noted are roughly equal in both length and driving time. The decision on which one to use should be made so as to address...

    To Be Honest...

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    First and foremost: The beauty of a RoadTrip is that you can customize it to be exactly what you want it to be. Personally, I'd do this a lot...

    That Fourth Dimension

    As Dave pointed out, and I'm just reiterating, it's not the route (North/South/Elevation) that will allow you to avoid mountains and snow, it's the fourth dimension, time, that will allow you to do...
  4. Lots of Possibilities, But One Big Problem

    This is the type of trip, especially with wanting the kids to have some sort of new adventure each day, that calls for a 'loop' trip rather than one in which you go somewhere and take the same route...
  5. In That Case....

    Since none of the suggestions for places to see on the southern half of your inland, scenic leg appeal to you, then I'd just do the northern part, the Mohawk Trail and the Delaware Water Gap and then...
  6. Keeping It Doable

    Thank you for taking my secondary advice to heart and now making this an iterative process. The new info you've given should help shore things up a bit more. My main concern at this point is that...
  7. What Else...?

    You say that many of my earlier suggestions "have cropped up on [y]our radar". As I pointed out, we'd need to know what else, either specifically or generally, is on your radar before we can continue...
  8. A Basic Driving Option

    I had hoped, when I sat down to have a look at how best for you to fulfill your travel wishes, to find and suggest some sort of 'figure 8' trip that would incorporate both urban and rural driving on...

    Another Voice Heard From...

    As long as we're on the topic of drive options for your new vehicle, I will pass along a bit of hard-earned knowledge. For many years, I lived in northern New England where I was the entire night...

    Some Thoughts

    Yes, as Rick notes, this is going to be a personal choice. And compromises will have to be made as some of your criteria are mutually exclusive. For most of my own major RoadTrips I used two...

    One Other

    I totally agree with Michael that an integral part of your planning should involve taking different routes out and back, but I might move one of those routes a bit farther south. With the 'Mighty...
  12. “Time is so strange, and life is twice as strange.”

    The Ray Bradbury quote above sums up what Michael said. Your trip is going to be about time and timing at least as much or more than it's going to be about weather and route. First and foremost...

    More to Safety than Route

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Yes, most long driving trips will offer multiple possible routes, and your is no exception. But the important part of that last sentence is just three...

    That's Entirely up to You.

    What town to stay in, what motel to sleep in, what diner to eat in - Those are all matters of personal choice. Just as you found this site, you can find sites that get down to the nitty gritty level...

    ...and Now for Something Completely Different

    If you plan to spend significant time in southern Utah seeing a bit of the Mighty Five, you can also visit the Grand Canyon and get quite a different feel for it than the usual visitor. That's...

    Personally....

    I have found that the best things to bring with me (besides a credit card and a fair bit of cash) is simply the willingness to have an adventure. Yes, if all you do is sit in the car and drive mile...

    Be Aware

    Just for the record, there is NO US-66 anymore. It was decommissioned in 1985. That was because most of it had been physically replaced by I-55, I-44 and I-40. In those few places where the old...

    No, I Don't

    If you need 100% absolute certainty that you will see NO adverse weather on a 2,000 mile trip, you're not going to get it, ever, anywhere. As I mentioned, the Interstates are kept open if at all...

    What, Me Worry?

    Not much has really changed about RoadTripping in the intervening 40 or so years since your last significant drive. The roads, attractions, restaurants and lodging choices have gotten a little bit...

    Fun Requires Time

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Let's cut right to the chase. If you can't leave Denver until the morning of the 28th and have to be in Sarasota by the evening of the first, then you...

    South of St. Louis

    Remember that the Great River Road is not single road but a network of roads. That said, I could not find a decent map on-line to point you to, but the opening page of the link I gave you earlier has...

    Agreed - Two (at least) Very Nice Roads

    I whole-heartedly agree with Michael's suggestion, but be aware that the scenic road(s) we recommend will not be the first suggestion of any computer-based mapping algorithm, including your GPS'. You...
  23. FOUR Days

    As others have pointed out, there is simply no way you're going to be able physically, let alone safely, drive to San Jose in two days. In fact, starting from Houston and going through Dallas, you're...
  24. Not Required

    New Jersey changed the EZPass requirement in mid-May and will now take cash at toll booths. The Delaware Memorial Bridge made the same change at the same time. The Delaware Turnpike's website says...
  25. I-95 Overnight Stops

    If you take the I-95 (more or less) routing, then a good target for your first night might be the Days Inn in Benson NC at 513 miles from NYC. A little bit farther down the road, there's a Days Inn...
