Hi all, this is my first post on these forums so be gentle!
Im 24, from the UK, and I am planning to come over to America late April 2007 to do some travelling. I have been researching the web but am still unsure on a few things and would appreciate some advice from others!
So here’s the plan. Fly out from the UK to New York. Then from New York head to Chicago. Then make the trek to Yellowstone, with a stop at Mt Rushmore. From Yellowstone going to head to the Grand Canyon via the Rocky’s, then onto Vegas. From Vegas to LA, then up hwy 1 to San Francisco.
I have given myself 4-5 weeks to do this. Really want to rent a car or something and drive the route, is this a viable option for that length of time? Not sure on rental prices in the US. What do you guys think of the route? Is 4-5 weeks a realistic time to get everything done, bearing in mind I was hoping to spend at least a few nights in the major cities.
Also advice on driving times would be good. I have looked on Google maps for journey times and distances between places, but that doesn’t take into account how busy certain areas are etc.
Any help at all would be greatly appreciated!
