I have been thinking for a few weeks that I want to go on some sort of trip after high school graduation. I turn 18 in the beginning of July so I was thinking about leaving around mid-july. I plan to go with 4 other people so money is not that big of an issue (somewhere around $500-$800 per person). I really want to go somewhere scenic like Yellowstone or Yosemite but I am just thinking about how crowded it will be. does anyone have some advice as to where I might venture to? I plan on driving, I would like to keep the trip within the US. My other question pertains to lodging, would I have a problem finding places to stay on my way there since I would only be 18 (two other people would be 17)?
thanks for your input.
