My name is Nicole & I am planning a road trip with 2 of my friends in Late Jan 2011. We are travelling to NY for a week, then flying to Orlando to visit the theme parks. It is from there we start our road trip. We will also finish back in Orlando, and then fly across to LA & visit Las Vegas, San Fran & San Diego.
The Road Trip.
We would like to go through the following states:
Georgia: going along the coast, through savannah
South Carolina, Alabama, Mississipi, Texas, Louisiana.
From Google maps it is about 3000 miles.
How many hours of driving would we be doing/day?
Google maps puts the time as 2 days 3 hours of driving which is 5 hours a day. However, I would like to know if this is accurate?
The things we are interested in:
Hopefully seeing a football match.. local.. college.. we dont mind! (I understand that in the start of Feb this yr there was some all stars game in texas.. is there something like that happening in 2011?)
Lance Armstrong.. (my friend is a huge fan)
We want to travel on a mixture of the main highways and scenic routes, if you could recommend further research for us.
Also if you could recommend places not worth visiting.. and places we should research further than would be great.
If you think this trip is not possible in 10 days.. keeping in mind we want to have no more than 6 hrs a day driving.. unless we do stop overs during the day at places.. then we dont mind driving all day.
If this trip isnt possible.. then we will skip texas.. although we really wanted to go there, as this brings it down to 2200 miles.
Hoping you can give me some advice.
