Hey everyone, my girlfriend and I have recently decided to take a road trip next May/June across the wonderful USA. We will have graduatedd from college and want to take a good break before we enter the working world. Also, we have been together for a while, so this could also be the ultimate test (hopefully we will pass, haha). We don't seem to agree on places but I blame that on the fact that we have only been to major cities (ATL, NYC, LA, Detroit, etc.). I hope this trip will be an eyeopener for the both of us.
Anyway, we don't have a designated time-frame to when we need to return, but maybe keep it around a month. We plan on staying at cozy, "mom & pop" motels/hotels, and eat at diners too keep cost down (maybe even a camp here and there).
Something I was thinking of is for each of us to list out places or attractions that we want to see, such as Yellowstone, Grand Canyon, and the rest of the cliche' vacations. Then we would just drive to each one, taking any route.
What advice do you have, what do we HAVE to see, where should we stay away from, what route seems the most scenic, etc. We are new and curious... we will take anything!
