My boyfriend and I are planning a trip from Columbus, GA (hour and a half south of Atlanta) to LA. We will have about $3000.00 and 18 total days. We want to drive as straight as we can to Vegas and stay a couple nights there. Then over to Anaheim to visit my father. We will stay with my father for 5 nights. Then we want to take our time coming home to see the sights. We want to come home a different way then we go out. I am wondering if $3000 should be enough. We want to spend $500 total in the casinos. Also, we don't really know what we want to see. We don't really have a clue axept we know we want to see the Grand Canyon and The Hoover Damn. Pretty much we just don't know what is in the areas we will be traveling. For one we aren't completely sure of the route. If anyone has a route they would like to share, we would really appreciate it.
