We are just starting to look into a cross country vacation but I think my expectations may be a bit off with how long it will take to get to CA.
Our plan was to take the week of Thanksgiving and drive from NJ to San Fran, spend a couple of days in the city and then drive back. I am not really sure which route to take and how many miles per day to allow. I've driven nonstop to Florida alone and it was okay but that's not the way I want to do this trip.
Other posts have said to allow about 500 miles per day but that means it will take 5 days to get out there, is that really the best way to do it? If so, we're going to have to take more time!
This will probably be the only time we do this so we want to make sure we do it right. How much time do you think we should allow ourselves? What should we see? We've already been to Vegas and Chicago.
