My wife and I (just the 2 of us - no kids!) are planning for a 14-15 day road-trip from Jacksonville, FL to the west coast and back. As of now our tentative trip plan is
1. Jacksonville to San Diego (I-10 and I-8)
2. San Diego to LA
3. LA to San Francisco by PCH and US-1
4. SFO to Sacramento
5. Sacramento to Salt Lake City
6. Salt Lake City to Denver
7. Denver to St. Louis
8. St. Louis to Memphis
9. Memphis back to Jacksonville, FL.
First of all, our question to the "gurus" is - "are we trying to get a lot of things done in 14-15 days"?
We do not intend to spend more than a couple of days in any major city (like LA / SFO). Our idea is that if there are any interesting parks / places en route, we would not mind a detour from the inter-state.
Also considering it would be end of December, is it advisable to plan anything around the Rockies? I have reserved a luxury rental car (like Cadillac DTS) - should I consider changing that to a SUV with AWD?
Thanks in advance!
