I'll be moving from L.A, CA to Orlando, Fl at the end of October. Most of my things will ship in boxes via postal mail. I'll be driving my car to Orlando however.
I do not mind driving but have never done such a huge road trip before. I am a single female early 30s and will mostly stick to the I-10. From this forum I gather it is pretty safe for a single young female to take a road trip alone.
My intend is to get there as fast as possible with a car, but I don't want to overdo it either. If I pass any nice need to see places along the way I will definitely stop there however. So far I am thinking of thinking of staying at a hotel in Tuscon, Odessa, Dallas (little detour to go to the 6th floor museum), New Orleans and then drive all the way to Orlando.
This means pretty much 500 - 600 miles a day drives. Is that do-able? Could I add more as to speed up the drive or should I stick to the 500 mile a day limit. Again I don't mind driving at all, however I do need some sleep at night.
And does anyone have any suggestions maybe for a different route? And does anyone else have suggestions for must see attractions along the way?
And what are good yet cheap hotels to stay at? So far I'm thinking about Travelodge, MOtel 6, Holiday Inn, Days Inn and the likes.
Thank you all so much for your help.
