I am travelling to USA in Dec and driving across for approx. 6 weeks. I am planning to arrive in US on Dec 23 and have accommodation booked in NY on the 28th, i do not have any specific accommodation on the way. What would be the best possible route (coming from Australian summer, i would prefer to avoid as much snow as i can). I have planed a route from LA > Flagstaff > Albuquerque > Fort Smith > Knoxville > Philadelphia. I am open to suggestions if i should make any specific changes to the trip, as i'll look up accommodation as i go, and what road side attractions can i visit around the route.
I am also looking to buy a GPS navigator as renting that with a car is way too much that buying one. Can i purchase it anywhere in or near LAX.
