I am planning one way family trip from San Francisco to Raleigh in July. I have two kids teenager and 2nd grader. I'm planning to spend 7-8 days on the road. I am looking for advice on kind of everything,This is our first such a long trip.
Is it a good idea?
Place to visit in the route which are interesting to kids?
How to keep kids entertained on the road?
Where can we stay (not looking for super cheap places)?
Where to eat? our family prefers vegetarian food
What to carry in the van?
What kind of issues can I expect?
Anything else which I have missed here?
I am planning to carry GPS, have AT&T phones and road side services.
My teenager would like to cover grand canyon, four corner monuments and other famous places to visit in the route. I prefer not to drive more than 6-7 hours a day.
