So I have been wanting to do a road trip for years now and now I have decided that it is going to be my last celebration after grad school graduation. This is going to be next summer between June and August. However, I have not really been looking into what I should see along the way. So what I am looking for here is some suggestions about how I can spend my time while I am driving.
Between the end of the semester and when I will probably will be starting working next summer I will have about six weeks to play with. I dont expect to fill all of this time by any means, even though I know I probably could.
I will be originating in central Ohio and have already done a lot of traveling in the midwest, eastern coast and a little bit in the South and I will probably be going to NY that summer for a graduation so those areas are not of as much interest to me right now. Originally I was thinking about driving Route 66 but I am sure there are interesting things I will miss by being so direct. I will be driving my own vehicle, so I will have to do a loop drive (which I am really excited about). I am planning on camping and taking advantage of all my family members who live strewn about the country.
My only goals for the trip are the Grand Canyon and San Francisco. So does anyone have some advice about awesome things I should not miss along the way?
