Myself and a few friends want to do some sort of road trip, but are a bit unsure of how to go about it!
We are from London, and have long fancied trying our hand at the much romanticised American road trip. We have a maximum if 2 weeks, and are aiming for late summer, probably around September time.
Thing is, we donít know where to go, for how long, how to get there....put simply, we donít know jack!
Vegas is a must, but other than that we are pretty much lost. We want to try and keep it a mix of scenic/historic sites and cities/towns with a young nightlife.
A few ideas have been thrown about, such as camping for a night or two on the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, Grand Canyon would be a great sight, and perhaps Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona.
But we just canít decide - there is too much we want to see?
Does anyone have any ideas for a 1st and memorable road trip (if it goes well, there will definitely be more!!)??
We also donít know about prices, accommodation, and time frames. I think prices depends on how much we want to spend, but accommodation (are there actually motels every few like the movies?!) and how much travel could we realistically do in 2 weeks?
What about local festivals? Are there any of note in late summer in that rough area of the states?
Any help would be greatly appreciated as we are desperate to see your great country!!
