I am very very very excited to say that I and 3 more people are driving from East Coast to West Coast of America too!
This is going to happen in summer. We are considering between June and July. Which month would be better? Prisewise- I have checked the prices of the flight tickets (Europe-USA) and June is much cheaper.
At the moment I have a crazy plan and not sure how realistic it is! I would like to fly to MIAMI. To stay a couple of days there and then fly back to NY. From NY to rent a economic car for 4 people and drive all the way to California. Ideally I would like to visit all 3 cities: LA, LAS VEGAS and San Francisco. We are going to spend 3 weeks in USA. I think it is quite realistic to go to MIAMI for a couple of days and then to go to NY and from there start our driving towards the other coast. We would give it about 15 days to drive through America including lots of sightseeing and stopping by's.
Also, we are considering good old and famous Route 66. Is it still something people do? I think it would be really nice to use this romantic route unless there is something we don't know yet.
I haven't done my research yet, so apart from bigger cities like Chicago and so on I havent planned yet what other places are worth stopping by.
I saw the rent price of the Cadical that was quoted by Norwegian Driver and it really scared me! You can get a good car for 2800 dollars! Not to rent it for 3 weeks. I hope I will be able to find cheaper deals.We are planning to take it in NY and return in California.
I am so excited as I think it is going to be the best journey of my life.I dreamed about it since childhood. Not to forget to mention- I am from Europe and have never been to States before so it is going to be reaaaly exciting. I often joke that after exploring entire America by driving I wouldnt mind to die (as there is no better thing in life then the joy of travelling).
Have you got any thoughts or advices to me?
Thanks so much in advance!
