After threatening to do so for a couple of years, I'm seriously thinking of driving my rising junior to her college in Washington DC, from Seattle, WA. The thought of us being on a plane is really stressful, in this time of masks and disinfectants. Of course, I'd have to balance staying in hotels/motels.
In any case, we'd probably pretty much drive 7-9 hours/day, to not have the trip take too much time. We've been across the country several times, most recently last summer with a drive that took us as far as Montreal, Quebec. So, we're veteran roadtrippers, as a family. But what I am really asking, what would be some good, lesser-known, less popular sights to see, that we can use to break up the trip along the way.
Anyone done a cross-country recently? Hotels/motels? I don't think we could camp....but I'd consider it if we felt that was the safer option.
Thanks for any thoughts/advice/input!
