    Default From Minneapolis to Tucson, Up The West Coast And Back

    Long time reader, first-time poster.

    Curious if anyone has any suggestions for a road trip that I'm starting rather soon. I took a month off from work (it's nice owning a business sometimes) and decided to go visit some family in Tucson, then to drive up the west coast to Seattle to visit some friends. Granted, I'll be driving back through Idaho, Montana and ND near the end of the trip, but it's a fact of life, I guess ;). There are no definite time restrictions beyond the fact that I have a month to do basically whatever I want...when I want.

    I'm a sophomore in college, so one might want to take that into account when suggesting ideas. But, I am very open-minded and excited to check out some things I've never seen before. I'm excited for your thoughts and ideas!

    Thanks everyone. Peace.

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    The problem with trying to offer suggestions for a trip like this is that you have so much time that you can do almost anything. Trying to list everything of interest within striking distance of a general route over your stated objectives would prove Herculean at best. Instead I'm going to offer two basic tools for finding things that might interest you in particular. The first is to use the Search function and look for other suggestions that have been made about points along the trip. For example, when you put in "Tucson", you'll find suggestions including Kartchner Caverns, Saguaro National Park, the Desert Museum, Pima Air Museum, Nogales (on both sides of the border) and many more. The other suggestion is to be sure to stop at each Welcome Center as you enter a new state and get their advice on what you're felling like exploring at the time - that may change throughout the trip. But a blanket "I'm going to be travelling through two-thirds of the US, what should I see?" leaves me up against an impossible wall.
