My girlfriend and I are interested in planning a late summer road trip from Los Angeles to New York City. She's only ever been to DC and Miami, I've only ever really been to cities on the coasts.
We'd like to see some great scenery, famous/noteworthy places, good food is always a bonus. Living arrangement wise - we're probably going to be staying in hotels so try not to leave us in a national park overnight!
We'd really like some advice on a good route to take. We'd like to stop in Vegas for 2-3 nights, and for the rest of the trip to NYC to not take longer than 2 weeks if possible.
