So the time is coming up for me to move back across the country, and this time, a friend and I are planning on driving one-way. We plan on leaving around August 11th, and would like to be back home by the end of August as unfortunately, classes start September 2nd. Short summer, indeed!
So far, the places we know we definitely want to hit:
Hearst Castle and the Pacific Coast Highway
Shakespeare Ghost Town in New Mexico
We're both coming home after a year away, and we're familiar with the NY-Florida drive, having done it with our families.
Mainly, the destinations I'd really love to hit are the kind of places you won't find anywhere else (such as the Dr. Pepper Museum, Graceland, etc.) We're both a bit silly and we'd love to go to places most people have never heard of , for the experience.
We actually don't have a car yet; but it looks like one of us will be buying a car on the way home. Does anyone have any experience with this? And if so, what state typically has cheapest prices for cars?
Budget; we haven't discussed. Luckily, between the two of us, we have friends all over the country, so we're hoping to play the couch surfing game. We're aiming for about 18-21 days altogether. Is this doable?
All and any suggestions will be greatly appreciated, thanks!
