I'm planning a road trip from Jacksonville, FL to San Francisco this summer. Just getting started on the plans really...and I want to make the most of my one way trip. I have a week to get there, and want to see everything I can possibly fit in. Looking for any advice on specific routes & must-sees. I will most likely take I10 over to California then up the coast. Thanks so much!
On I-10 and its surroundings :
LA : New Orleans (music, ambiance, cajun food, "voodoo vibes", colourful people, French architecture)
TX : Houston (space center), San Antonio (++) (Riverside walk, parks, Ft Alamo, spanish architecture), El Paso/ Juarez (border town, mexican food, shopping, Old mission trail)
NM : White Sands Nat'l mon (US70), Ghost towns
AZ : Ft Bowie, Saguaro, Tombstone and Bisbee, San Xavier Del Bac (spanish mission), Tucson
I'll let the others help you with the rest (I-8, I-5, etc.), I haven't been west of Phoenix.
