I'm sure you have had many inquiries in the past from many hopeful post high school grads wondering where to go on a senior road trip - so being a post high school grad I am asking for your expert advice on the subject of road-tripping! Myself and three other friends are looking for an exciting, different and magical road trip plan for later on in the summer before we go our separate ways to college. Our starting location will be in Iowa, which is sadly rather in the middle of things making driving in any direction rather long. We have gotten the "ok" from our parents and are ready to take an exciting trip that will get us away from the Iowa/Minnesota region. We are all willing to split the driving and gas four ways, but are wanting to spend nothing much more than $150 per person for a roundtrip. We have 9 days open, and a few ideas, but I found this wonderful community and couldn't pass up asking everyone here for some killer road trip destinations. We are trying not to do too much long driving, but breaking it up with fun stops would be an option. Of course being quite landlocked, it is always great to see a little ocean action, but both options are rather far away as it is. If anyone has any exciting and magnificent ideas for destinations, routes, trips or tips in general we would all be very appreciative. I have been browsing around the forms and looking at other senior trip posts, as well as various road trip tips ect. and have found some neat things - thanks to all who make this site possible!
- we are willing to camp
- would prefer locations other than ia, mn or ut
