My husband and I are planning to fly to New York next year around the 7th Sept (2009)and plan to spend five weeks road tripping across America for our tenth wedding anniversary.
I think we have decided to just go one way and end up in LA or San Fran, my first question is should we go this way? which is best weather wise?? East to West, or West to East? and what sort of weather should we expect at this time of year?
These are the places we wish to visit:
New York (well we only want to go to Niagara Falls - done new York city! where would we be best to fly to for Niagara?
then we are not sure whether to go through Virginia/West Virginia/Ohio? basically we want to head to Tennessee and see Nashville and Memphis
Next definate stop is Texas; dallas area.
then we don't know what to do??? we want to go through New Mexico & Arizona, Vegas, LA & San Fran - the problem is that we also would like to go into Kansas and up to see Mount rushmore (I know all over the place!!)
Does anybody have any suggestions of a route? or area's that we MUST see? I'm trying to do as much research as possible.
Basically any help, ideas or suggestions would be most appreciated!! We did also think of flying into New York (or wherever we start) and then fly back there to return to the UK as this would eliminate the one way rental charge on the car and also we could buy a return flight rather than the cost of two one way flights from the UK - any ideas on how much internal flights cost? from San Fran to NY?
Do you think we can do all that we want to do in five weeks? we don't wan't to be constantly driving and would like to actually see the places we visit!!
Thank you in advance for your help!!
