I will be traveling cross country at the end of this month Leaving from Chesapeake, Va heading to Bonney Lake, WA.
From WA I was planning to travel down the PCH but, due to the road collapse Im unsure of what to do about that. I pretty much had my heart set on seeing the Red Woods. Eventually Ill end up in San Diego for a few days then heading to Vegas and the Grand Canyon. Id really like to stop on Austin TX on my way home also.
But heres my road block, I have no idea what route to take on my way to WA and the second half of my trip home. I would like to see Mt Rushmore. But should I stop in Chicago? Indianapolis? What cites are really worth it? I have a tiny budget and plan to sleep in my car a lot or stay with people I know in different cities…which is also proving to get in the way. Also since I am female and traveling alone, where is the best place to sleep in your car?? That can prove to be pretty dangerous.
I have searched and searched the internet and read reviews on where to stay and what to see but, it seems to all eventually become the same!! I want to see the best of what America has to offer! ANY suggestions would be great.
My time frame is July 20- Aug 31.
