My boyfriend and I are heading out in early September for a big move from Boston to San Jose. We are planning to take our time on the drive but would ideally like to complete it in about 10 days and drive around 6 hrs per day. This is our first serious road trip and I am just looking for suggestions.
Our rough schedule looks like this:
Bos-Buffalo, NY-Manchester, MI (where we are staying with relatives)-Davenport, IA-Lincoln, NE- Boulder, CO (where we are staying with friends)-Salt Lake City, Ut-Winnemucca, NV-and (pheww) San Jose, CA. Basically I am looking for suggestions of places to see, if our stops seem like good places to stop, other things i am missing....any suggestions would be appreciated. Also, we are trying to keep our costs relatively low so we were thinking about alternating between camping and cheap hotels and cheap food so if you have any suggestions about any of this that would be helpful also.
Thanks so much!! I can't wait for our trip!
