My girlfriend and I are getting ready to leave next Friday on a roadtrip from Denver to Orlando, to begin an internship at Walt Disney World!
Here is our proposed route:
We plan to stop overnight in
Kansas City, MO
Panama City, FL
This will be the road trip mobile:
1999 BMW 750iL
My favorite place to spend a few thousand miles:
We leave August 1st, and have to be IN ORLANDO on the 10th. We have hotels booked in Memphis for the 6th, New Orleans the night of the 7th and 8th, Panama City the night of the 9th and Orlando the night of the 10th.
I have a few questions:
We would like to take some "back roads." The reason we are leaving so early is to take a relaxing road trip. Normally when I road trip I get on the highway and haul to where I'm going. Not this time. Is it worth it to take "back roads" through KS or just I-70?
What are some fantastic greasy spoons along the route? Greasier the better :)
Is New Orleans parking safe? We are staying at the Intercontinental downtown, and they have a $29/day parking garage. I just want to make sure it will be safe to leave the car there.
I am totally open to suggestions from everyone! We plan to take tons of pictures and video and to make a video of the trip when we get to Orlando!
Thanks in advance for any help you all can provide!
