My boyfriend and I are from Australia, and we are planning to fly over to New York City around the 7th September. We will be spending about 6 days in New York, before jumping in a car and spending approximately 16 days travelling, with our final destination being L.A. We have been to America before, so have already visited most of the California area, as well as having already driven from L.A to Las Vegas - however have not seen the Grand Canyon. On another trip before that, we have also visited Boston and areas around there - as you can see, we have loved visiting your country and are looking forward to coming over for a bigger road trip.
Since we'll be starting in New York, i am interested in seeing more of the New Engalnd area, but i really dont know where to even start, or whether it is practical to spend 4 or 5 days driving around in a circle in that area before starting to head west. My boyfriend says he'd love to see Texas - but they seem in opposite area's of the country completely!
Do you have any suggestions of a route that cover both within the time frame we are working towards?
Is there any area's of particular value that we should see on your recommendation? It seems a daunting task to plan a road trip this long, and i think we need some ideas about where to stop so that we can start mapping out a more definate route.
We are also concerned about not booking accomodation along the way - would it be hard to get places to stay on a nightly basis, or is it better to plan this in advance?
Thank you in advance for your help on this one - i know its a big trip, and i may not have covered information you need to know.
