I'm planning my first ever solo road trip in a few weeks and I'm looking for some tips. I'm looking to cut cost first and foremost, and and am wondering if there's free campsites where I could sleep in my car along the way, or if I would be better off at truck or rest stops.
I'm also wondering if there's anything of particular interest that shouldn't be missed en route. I'm trying to decide if I should take 3 or 4 days for the drive, so I don't want to go /too/ off course as once I'm in NOLA I'll have someone to stay with.
Any advice would be so welcome!
After NOLA I'll be driving across to Orlando, and then up back to CT through Charleston. My plan is to make the drive from Charleston to CT in one day, but I could push it to two if need be. Anything on any of those legs that shouldn't be missed? Or in any of the cities I'll be passing through or staying in? Any advice for where to sleep for a single female?
I'm excited, but a little nervous!
