We are a Danish family (but living in Nicaragua) planning a roadtrip this summer from Miami to San Francisco. Time schedule is about 3 weeks, and budget around 7-10.000 dollars
Plan is to rent an RV, and price so far is 76$ a day.
It will be a one way trip.
Children age is 14, 12 and 6 years old.
Our plan is to see:
Miami - nothing really, maybe the Everglades - we have enough beaches and sun down here :-)
Orlando - Disneyworld, Universal Studios (3-4 days - we have seen the small Disney in Paris, so it is just to let the kids see how HUGE it is compared to France)
Memphis - Graceland
New Orleans -
Houston - Kennedy Space Center
and then (don't know if the order is right)
Santa Fe - Indian resorts
Solvang (the Danish town)
San Francisco - Golden Gate, Fishermans Wharf and Seaworld (or is it better in Orlando?)
Any comments on budget, time schedule or things we have to see ?
Especially in the southern states ideas would be highly appriciated.
We are into nature and history.
I did a similar trip (SF-NY through the southstates and Orlando) when I was 13 with my parents, and remember it as THE all time favorite vacation, so now I want to share this with my own family :-) But since I was only 13, I didn't noticed the planning and what else to see.
Our first plan this summer was just a roadtrip in Florida, but then we thought we had time to see some more, but I'm not sure of the budget.
Is it correct the average campingfee is around 10-50 $? (RV 25ft)
And we have to fly from San Francisco to either Atlanta, Houston, Miami og Ft. Lauderdale to get back to Nicaragua. Any cheap domestic airlines from SF to the above mentioned cities you know of?
Please share your comments and thoughts :-)
