I have been on many road trips but the majority has been on the East coast. I have recently moved to the West Coast and I am planning a West coast tour. The current beginning plan is to drive from Seattle, Washington to Amarillo, Texas taking the basic Route 66 path (I know it will be a little difficult to find in certain areas I have 2 books and a new map set) for 7-10 days, then spending 4 days in Las Vegas (for a convention which is the whole reason for the trip) and then taking a week to come back up via Highway 101 in California.
I would love any suggestions or feedback on these areas as I have no clue where to begin with much of what to see. The majority of the sites I have listed to see are Natural Wonders (Painted Desert, Grand Canyon, CA beaches and possibly Channel Islands) would anyone have suggestions for sites (even kitschy or obscure I personally love South of the Boarder in South Carolina for a few hours)? Any tips or ideas would be welcome. I have a basic layout mapped but am flexible with much of the trip at this point. Being an East coaster I am not used to the “Wide Open Spaces”. :)
Thank you all for your feedback!
