Great forum, I wish I would have found it earlier beause i am running out of time now. Basically, I am driving my mother out to San Diego (leaving from Philadelphia, PA) and we are leaving Friday morning (8/17).
She wants to get out there in 4 days but I am thinking 5 (she is trying to save on the rental). Even though we are going to be pressed for time, we would like to be able to stop here and there and see something to remember the trip if that makes sense. Looking for unique tourist stops, or maybe state specific landmarks, something lke that.
We are traveling I76 across PA, then I-70 (Ohio, Indiana,West VA, Illinos)
then I-55 (Missouri)
then I-44 (Oklahoma)
then I-40 (Texas, New Mexico, Arizona)
Any thoughts on stops and sightseeing using these parameters? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
