My girlfriend and I are taking a cross country road trip and camping a lot of the way. We have 4 weeks. From NY to Niagara Falls = 6 and 1/2 hrs, 368 miles. Spend 2 nights camping near falls. Niagara to Lake Michigan 7 and a 1/2 hrs, 480 miles. spend 2 night camping. Mich to Chicago 6hrs 45 mins, 396 miles camp one night.
After this we are trying to make it to Boulder and stay with family for 2 or 3 nights, we need to find a place to stop on the way and sleep since it's 15 hrs away. After Boulder we are trying to make it to the grand canyon = 15 hrs, then Vegas where I have family to stay for another couple nights = 5 more hrs. Also need a place in between. Then Vegas to San Fran = 9 hrs. Total of 3,783 miles, Then back to NY for another 3,000 miles. I am trying to find a good way to break it up in 4 weeks minimizing hrs on road per day.
Any suggestions on what route to take on the way back to NY from San Fran. ?Maybe easier driving, nice scenic routes, good places to sleep? Thanks
