I would be very grateful for any suggestions for places of interest on the very popular EAST - WEST USA road trip .
We are a family of two adults & a 14 year old boy , from the U.K. We have been to Florida many times but now would like to explore more of the USA . The plan is April 3rd 2011 fly into Newark for two nights ( NYC highlights ) then onto
Niagara Falls again for one or two nights ..... that takes us upto 6th .Our destination is Las Vegas where we intend to spend
4 nights ( 20th - 23rd ) and fly out early Sunday morning back to the U.K.
It's the bit ! between that I need advice on , we would like to head south to the Gulf of Mexico (Pensacola) to get some warm
Weather & dip our toes in the Gulf waters , move on through
Louisiana, Texas and finally Las Vegas would also like to catch Route 66 at some point . Our vehicle will be med SUV ( not the best on fuel ) Iíll be the only driver but donít mind
Would like to stay at Moms & Pops style motels & not too keen
On the interstates as we would like to see quirky places but realise these roads will be necessary to get to places faster .
Would also like to call at a theme park on the way , not keen on big Cityís . So there it is any advice on places to visit would
Be greatly appreciated .
