First of all I've got to say that the site and all your comments are fantastic.
I am italian and I love so much USA. I started to visit USA since 1993 for business and vacation. I had a lot of road trip, for example in the last two years I spent one month per year in south- and north-west. My favorite road trip is from LA across desert and canyon to the park of the northwest and then go down to LA from the coast of Washington, Oregon and California states.
Generally, I have not prefixed target with a rigorous timetable but a tentatively idea of the route, and along the way I decide to stop or not to see something around. I prefer scenic route to interstate highway. I have different books regarding this latter argument together with maps and gps satnav in my pocket pc. We are a married couple with a six years son.
Now I am writing because this year I want to plan a coast to coast trip. My tentatively planning is to stay 6-7 days in Florida, then 13-14 days of trip to get LA (and see around) and finally other 6-7 days in LA area dedicated to relax, shopping and to my son (Disney and Studios). What do you think about? I know well the West but I don't know anything about the South-Est (except FL) and Central-South parts of USA...so please advise me.
Is it too hard 14 days step from Miami to LA? Consider that my six years old son Marco is a very resistant boy habituated to travel 7-8 hours per day but NOT all the days.
Thanks in advance and congratulation for forum and the site that I am avidly exploring .
