Me and three of my friends are planning a roadtrip sometime next year for about 4-6months.
Just wanting some suggestions...
What time of year would you say is best?
We are coming from the UK so not sure how much petrol (gas) will cost?
We are thinking of starting in New York heading down the east coast to florida, across thru texas etc, grand canyon, Las vegas the national parks LA up the west coast and across a long way round back to New York but this part of the route isn't decided yet.
Are there any places absolutely NOT to be missed? and places to completely AVOID at all costs?
How much are National Parks admissions?
Is it best to rent a car? We are going for a long time, but as we don't know much about what to look for in cars and being 4 girls think that for peace of mind it would be a good idea to rent rather than buy.
Accomodation wise...mainly hostels, some motels and just some random nights spent in some unique accomodations.
We want to pretty much do everything we can (within reason) lots of walking, seeing the sights, national parks etc
Do you think 6000 UK pounds is enough for that amount of time? Its about $8922 each (obv that is the currrent exchange rate and bound to change)
We will be splitting all gas costs, accomodation and living off fast food, pasta's, rice, and some healthy things now and again but mainly eating cheaply
Any suggestions and idea's will be grately apriciated
