hello! my boyfriend and i are looking for advice on an upcoming trip.
last summer, we drove from los angeles (where he grew up) to new hampshire (where i grew up). we spent most of the cross-country trip west of chicago. (after chicago we went to toronto, and then straight to NH).
we're both 22 and are currently living in boston. we have about 1 1/2 weeks this summer to explore the east. we like camping and hiking and being outside; we also like museums and cities. we're hoping to go south, since we've both seen quite a bit of new england, and have thought about setting west virginia as our final destination, but we can't really make up our minds.
our only real constraints are that we have 1 1/2 weeks, and we'd like to camp for at least part of the trip to save some money.
is there anything we absolutely shouldn't go another year without seeing? anywhere that you would highly recommend traveling to? we're a bit overwhelmed by the possibilities! any advice or input is much appreciated!!
