Hi! I'm traveling from Portland, OR to Virginia Beach, VA for work. I've decided to make a road trip of it and take my 16 year old niece with me for her birthday. We are leaving on April 1st and only have about a week. I need to get her to somewhere along the southern east coast by mid/late day on April 8th where my sister will meet us during her road trip from NY to Fla. I've done a few long road trips before but have never been the primary planner and have a tendency to be a fly by the seat traveler. With my niece in tow and our cramped time, I need to be a bit more of a planner. I know that most northern parks will still have lots of snow and am thinking a southern route and hitting the Grand Canyon would be our best option. I'd love some advice on routes and/or attractions that could be fit in during this speedy trip. Thanks for your help!
