i'm glad i found this site. It seems that many people in this forum are aware of hitting the road in the states. So i thought i could ask you for some tips or advices for a road trip with my brother in this summer. (sorry for bad english, i don't use it pretty often in germany... hope it will be better through some small talk during the trip :) ). so this is what it is about:
me and my brother (from cologne, germany and münster, germany) are planning to do a road trip in this summer. We will arrive in the end of august in miami. then we stay for about one month in the united states. we already rent a car that will be given to us in miami. So, here is our roughly planned route:
Miami - Key West
Key West - Miami - Daytona beach
Daytona beach - Jacksonville
Jacksonville - New orleans
New orleans - houston
houston - dallas (it might be possible that we cut houston off our route - except anyone tells us, that there is a lot to see..)
dallas - amarillo
amarillo - albuquerque
albuquerque - monument valley
monument valley - grand canyon
grnad canyon - las vegas
las vegas - san diego
san diego - LA
LA - SFO
We also want to visit sequoia, yosemite and death valley. So, we know, that it will be a kind of hard trip, but both of us are so excited to hit the road... our goal is the path.
So, do you have any advices for us, which we should know? We planned to sleep in a tent on camping grounds, so it would be nice, if anyone could tell us some good campgrounds for our trip. I think it will be pretty hard to sleep in a tent in the summer in florida, so any suggestions for e.g. some good motels or youth hostels will really help us! It would also be nice, if someone has some tips for some nice stations to get a restorative meal (breakfast, lunch, dinner) to stay energized during the trip.
thanks in advance for any help!
