    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Are you planning on making this a round trip or one way? 10 days gives you lots of time to explore on a one way trip. 10 days is also really really pushing human limits in terms of a round trip.

    As far as a route, there is no such thing as a "best" route. There are several options, all with their own pluses and minues.

    Car rentals can vary widely from company to company and from day to day. A one way rental will cost much more than a round trip.

    Motels if you shop around, you might be able to find places for as little as $30-40 a night. However, I would plan for at least $50 by the time you factor in room taxes.

    In terms of dos and don'ts, look around this website. You'll find lots of articles as well as forum posts that should give you some good ideas.
