My husband and I are planning a road trip for this October. As we are coming from Australia, we do want to see as much as possible - but not to overdo it (i.e. travel so much that we are unable to enjoy the actual experience!) - and we have been to the States previously so there are some things we have decided to miss.
Our plan is to fly to LA and get a connecting flight straight to San Antonio to visit a friend for a few days. It is there that we will pick up our vehicle and head for Houston (2 days),
followed by New Orleans (2 days),
Memphis (2 days)
and Nashville (4 days).
From Nashville we planned on flying to New York (so we weren't having to drive in the big apple! - 5 days)
then heading to Niagara Falls (2 days), where we would pick up another vehicle and continue our road trip through
Cleveland (2 days),
Chicago (5 days),
Des Moines (2 days),
Omaha (2 days),
Denver (2 days),
Salt lake city (2 days),
Carson city (2 days).
A few days in wine country/Napa then down through Big Sur (total 5 days) and right down to Huntington Beach to visit with some family before heading home.
My question is, with these 'planned' stops, would the road travel in between towns still be too lengthy to cope with? Are there any distances there which would require more than say, 6hrs?
Thanks in advance!
