I am 25, from Germany, and 3 friends and me want to go on a cross country roadtrip next spring.
There are only a few rough ideas where we do want to start and what we want to see.
The roadtrip mustn't be longer than 3 weeks in total, we want to start in either New York City ( already been there, so no sightseeing or so) or Boston.
We want to do a little sightseeing, f.e. Grand Canyon, National Parks maybe the Niagara Falls, but we are open to new ideas :)
We absolutely want to visit the following cities : Las Vegas, San Francisco, Los Angeles and maybe Chicago, Greater New York City area
What is the "best" route to cover all of the cities and as many sightseeing spots as possible. It won't matter where we sleep, i think we are all okay with motels or simple hotels.
Even more important, how many miles do I have to take into the planning of the total costs?!
Are there any other things I missed?!
I work for a car rental service and get some kind of a special fare. But I am interested, what a normal car (4 per) would cost me.
What would the total cost be like (except the rental car!)?
Thank you for reading.
Any suggestions, help or so would be very nice:)
