I'm moving cross-country and my brother and I decided we would do a cross-country road trip to make the move more fun. We are planning on hitting the following places but I would love advice on planning the itinerary, saving money and on car/van rentals for a one way trip. We are planning on doing some camping as well as hotel stays in bigger cities.
Roadtrip plan so far:
San Francisco-Los Angeles
Los Angeles-Las Vegas
Las Vegas- Grand Canyon
Grand Canyon- Santa Fe, NM (this may be too long? Advice on a cool place to stop between the two?)
Santa Fe-Austin, Tx (another place where I need advice for a city to stop in along the way)
Baton Rouge to New Orleans
New Orleans to Memphis
Memphis to Nashville
Nashville to Asheville, NC (to see Blue Ridge Parkway - possibly camp here?)
Ashville to Baltimore (need another stopping place between here too?)
Thanks for any input/advice!!! This is my first cross country road trip and I have no idea what I'm getting myself into! LOL!
