  1. 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...
  2. 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...
  3. Reality and the "Heart of the Beast"

    Two things need to be established from the get go. First and foremost, you should NOT plan on spending your first night in South Carolina. Even if you lived in New York City, near an entrance to the...
  4. Rapid City

    In my opinion, one of the most underrated scenic/historic areas of the US is the one surrounding Rapid City SD. If you can spare it a couple of days, you'll be well rewarded. The obligatory stop is...

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    That is Correct

    Yes, New Mexico has a 14 day quarantine requirement for anyone entering the state from a 'high risk' state, and every state you'll be visiting on this trip falls into that category. For how that...

    In That Case

    It seems that you're ruling out roads that you've driven before, to which I can only say "Bravo". But since one or both of you have already seen I-40 and southern Utah, then it does make more sense...

    The Other Alternative

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    US-60 has some incredibly scenic sections in Arizona but not, unfortunately, on your route to Las Vegas. The route I would suggest, instead of either...

    Keep the Route Short and the Opportunities Plentiful

    You'll need three full days of solid driving to make the trip. That really only leaves you two days for the sights and experiences you'd like to have. Since one of the mottos of this organization is...

    Being Ready for the Weather

    If the dates for your travel are relatively fixed, then to avoid inclement weather, you need to be able to adjust your route on the fly. Thus I gave you three possible routes. Flexibility will be...

    Alternatives and Additions

    It's always a good idea, but especially in winter, to have at least one back-up plan. As you set up your trip, keep that in mind. And since you're looking for other things to see and do along the...

    One More Resource

    One of the more 'interesting' towns along your proposed route is Oatman AZ. Just be aware that old route 66 east from town towards Kingman is not marked as US-66 any longer (US-66 was decommisioned...
  14. ...And See as Much as We Can

    Ah... the perfect definition of a RoadTrip. So what are some other things to see besides those you've already listed? I've already mentioned Petrified Forest National Park. I also mentioned that...
  15. Ten Days Would Work Much Better Than Seven

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Five or Six Days: The Decision Point

    As Donna pointed out, at 2,400 miles(±) by the most direct route (I-94/I-90/I-29/I-70/I-64/I-57/I-24), you won't really have much time for major sight-seeing stops, certainly not if they entail...

    Three Digit Interstates

    There's absolutely nothing requiring that a three digit Interstate designation be unique, only that it be locally unambiguous. Thus any three digit I-X80 designation used significantly east of San...

    Lexington is not Just in Massachusetts

    Personally, I've always been fond of Lexington VA. Another walkable, charming southern town, it's almost exactly 2/3rds of the way back to Princeton.

    A Possible Alternate Route

    One thing I always try to do on out-and-back RoadTrips is to take different routes each way. I also suspect that you're already looking at the computer-preferred route up through DFW and Amarillo to...

    One More

    There's also a short segment of TN/VA-1 in Bristol, which straddles the state line. But it's only a couple of dozen city blocks long which I don't think of as a 'highway' or 'road', but rather a...

    Just a Guess

    I don't know for sure, but since the road is marked as two different state highways, I would assume that the appropriate state police patrol their respective sides of it. If you think about it, most...
