Well to start off the trip is going to consist of me and 3 of my friends and we are going to be all 18. We figured this would be an exciting and memorable experience for after graduation. We would like to travel to California including some pit stops at different attractions along the way... To add more specifics we are looking to go San Fransisco, my car gets around 23-25 miles a gallon and we are looking to say in the cheapest lodging along the way. But the problem is none of us have ever gone on a road trip before. So hopefully someone can help us we these few questions...
1. How long should we allow for this trip
2. How much will a trip like this cost (guesstimating)
3. What is th best route we should take
4. Any cool attractions to stop at along the way and in California
