  1. Default Miami to San Francisco


    My mate and I are trying to plan a road trip from Miami to San Francisco in July. We will be coming from the UK and only have about 17 days for the trip. We would like to stop for about 2 days each in Miami, Orlando, New Orleans, LA and San Francisco and a day in Houston. It seems to me that 17 days won't be enough/too rushed for this trip. Any thoughts/suggestions?

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    If you do the trip you've currently laid out, you wouldn't be extremely rushed, but you wouldn't have time to go off the plan much either. You've laid out 11 days worth of stops, leaving you 6 days of driving to cover the distance from Miami to SF. 6 full days of driving would be about what you need to cover the mileage, so the math adds up.

    Now having said that, if you wanted to also fit in things like a stop at the Grand Canyon, drive up the coast from LA to SF, or any of the thousands of other things you could see or do along the way, then you'll start to get very crunched in terms of time.

    It just depends upon the type of trip you are looking for. If you want to make the stops you've listed a priority, and don't care much about lies between, you'll be alright. If you want to do more exploring along the way, then you may need to cut back a bit on the city stops you've currently planned.
