  1. Default Advice for summer roadtrip?

    My best friend and I are planning a roadtrip to start over the summer. We want to spend a month or two traveling. We each saved a thousand dollars and are planning to split all the costs completely. I suppose I'm just wondering if I could get some general advice on great places to stop and see. I think we're going to stick to the northern states and then shoot for California and then take a route through the south toward home. Any advice for two greenhorns looking for an adventure?

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    We occasionally get questions very similar to yours. "I have a month (or so) and want to see most of the U.S., where should I go? What should I see?" Such a question is simply too broad to answer. The best advice that can be offered at this point inn your general planning are the standard: Make sure that you and your friend are on the same page as to what your RoadTrip will be about, and then get a good atlas of the U.S. and start marking the places that appeal to you. You then build your RoadTrip around those. When you have a basic outline that suits your needs, then we can offer advice on other sites that might fit the bill, but we can't start the process from scratch.

    I would say that $2,000 for 2 people for a month is very much on the low side and would make for a severely restricted trip. That's only about $30-35/day for each of you - hardly enough to cover gas and food, let alone lodging and admission to attractions.
