Hi all! I have just come across this forum as we are thinking of doing a 14 night road trip in America next May. We are from the UK and the only time I have been to the states was a long time ago!
So we originally thought Route 66, from Chicago to LA, however after speaking with some people that have done this, they advised against it due to a lot of long roads with not an awful amount to see on them. Also, from the itinerary we have done through a couple of different companies, it seems quite rushed only have one night in most places and a good 3-4 hour drive most days.
So, we are now thinking of doing the East coast, from San Francisco down to LA, through Napa Valley, Vegas and Yosemite. This seems a much more relaxed route in the sense we would spend a couple of nights in each place and there is more, seemingly, to see and do.
We would rather go through a company as opposed to sorting it out ourselves, I would prefer for our first road trip like this to be all planned out and we know where were going beforehand by a (hopefully!) trusted company. The two so far that we have been in touch with are Wexas and Complete North America.
I was hoping for peoples thoughts on this if possible please, as we are practically total newbies in the country! What are the roads like, and which of the above two routes would you recommend? Also any absolutes must-see areas along the route? If also love to get in an NBA game too, and my partner is hell bent on going to a shooting range!!
Thanks in advance,
