  1. Default A month Long Road Trip

    There are 7 people going on a road trip. We are starting in Ft. Lauderdale, fl to North Carolina to Las Vegas. (We are looking for a hotel that is nice but isn't expensive and is on the strip. Any suggestions? ) to Cali (San Onofre) then to New York and back home to Fl. Are there any places that its a must that we see?

    Default Just a Few...

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    ...of the places I'd be sure to include in such a trip would be: Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Graceland, Talimena Scenic Drive, the Oklahoma City Memorial, Santa Fe, Petrified Forest National Park, the Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce Canyon and Arches National Parks in Utah, Rocky Mountain National Park, the landmarks of the Oregon Trail along the Platte River, Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and Cuyahoga National Parks in the midst of two of the Midwest's most urban areas, the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, Independence Mall in Philadelphia and the National Mall in Washington, Charleston, SC, Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge and Cumberland Island National Seashore in southeast Georgia, and finally, if you haven't hit it already, the Kennedy Spaceflight Center in Titusville. There are a ton more smaller scale venues, but any trip built around those will be a crowd pleaser. Speaking of which.....

    I really hope you have two vehicles and/or are planning on spending considerable time out of the car(s) pursuing your separate interests. 7 people cooped up in a single car for 30 days would put severe strains on your friendship.

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    You're looking at a loop of the entire country, so I'm sure there would be "must see" things, but what's must see for you and your group might not be the same as must sees for others. That depends upon what you are looking for. If you let us know what kinds of things you want to see, we can be of more help.

    7 people is a large number for a roadtrip group. How are you dealing with the logistics of traveling with this many people?

    As far as strip hotels go, generally speaking hotels on the far north end, like the Stratophere and the Sahara are usually the less expensive places, but you're really best searching around for the specific dates for your trip and see if you can find a deal somewhere.
