Taking a road trip with a friend in the middle of August, going from Boston to Los Angeles. Eventually I'll be relocating there, but this is just to get the car over, and have some fun in the process. We will have about a week and a half, with some "flex time" in case it needs to take longer.
We are not sure which route to take, but we have not seen much of the country, so anything interesting will be considered.
Any suggestions, "must see" places, etc? What is there to see / do in "middle america" if we choose to cut across the continent directly?
