You guys have been helpful over the years in planning my cross country trips. This will be my 5th coast-to-coast trip, and I want to make it a little different/special. It will probably be the last one I do for a while (the need to go twice/year is now ending). In the past I have taken 4-6 days to do the trip. This year I have a little more flexibility. I have at most 10 days. I'd like to stay in the 6-8 day range, but if there is something truly worth doing, then I'd be willing to spend 1-2 days there doing it. Depending on the route, my past trips have been around 2,800 miles coast-to-coast. Thinking about adding a little more this trip, I'd go up to 3,800, I think.
This is where I've taken the trip in the past:
This new trip must originate in D.C. and end in Los Angeles. I'd very much appreciate your suggestions for stops along the way. We've considered Niagra Falls, Mt. Rushmore, Yellowstone, Yosemite, New Orleans as possible "anchors" for the trip. Let meknow what you think!
Thanks so much!
