I'm in the early phase (thought it up yesterday) of planning a 2 week road trip for next summer. I've never gone on a drive longer than 400-500 miles, so this should be an interesting experience for the family (me, the wife, and our 7 year old son). Starting and ending point is Bakersfield in central California. We have a 26' travel trailer that we use mostly for weekend trips to the central coast, but we haven't yet made up our minds if this will be an RV trip or a hotel trip. I am open to anything, though I would like to see as many varied types of environments as feasible in 14 days. Generally anything that takes us out of the state first. I've lived in California all my life, I wouldn't mind leaving it behind in the first day! So this is a tall order, but for a road trip first timer with the information I've laid out, where would you go and what would you do?
