I'm in the middle of planning my honeymoon. My husband and I are planning a three week road trip. We know it will be a lot of driving but we will be taking turns. I was hoping people might look at our route below and maybe have some suggestions on what would be the most scenic route to take to each of our destinations. We have done the Trip Tik on the AAA site and that of course gives probably the most direct route, I just want to make sure we don't miss all the great scenery. Also if you have been to any of the places we are planning on staying, can you let us know if you would recommend them. If there are any suggestions of places you think can't be missed along the way, please let us know!! Thanks !!!! xxx Also was wondering what weather to expect in Yosemite middle of October, we're camping!
