I'm hoping to do my very first cross country road trip this summer... solo no less. I'll be driving out to a job internship in California from Vermont and then back again. It looks like I'll have about 3 weeks for the drive out and another 3 for the drive back.
I'm wondering if anyone has some suggestions on must-sees, routes to consider, general information? Right now I'm hoping to drive South and then West during late May/early June, and then North and East in August.
I've grown up in the North East, so I've already explored Boston, NYC, and Philadelphia. Some of the places I have on my tentative list include (in no paticular order): grand canyon, yosemite, mt.rushmore, graceland, new orleans, san fransisco, seattle, las vegas, red wood forest, crater lake, and nappa valley.
I'm incredibly busy for the next few month but don't want to fudge planning this incredible journey. Thank you in advance for your help!
