Firstly I’d like to apologize for my poor written English.
We’re two Danish guys (25 and 23 years old) who are planning to cross the US in approx. 25 days beginning late August 2006.
We’ll start out in Miami and end the trip in San Francisco.
Our problem is that we don’t really know which cities and places rock and which, well doesn’t.
We’ve never been on a road trip before so we need some general advice regarding how much you want to drive each day, should you stay off the interstate ect.
In average we would like to restrict the travel time to aprox. 2-3 hours per day.
We don’t mind taking a few long stretches (6-12 hours) if it means we’ll be able to relax and enjoy a cool place for a couple of days.
I’ve attached to JPEGs that I created with Microsoft Streets and Trips 2006. They’re very rough travel plans.
But which cool sightings shouldn’t we miss in Florida and on our way trough Georgia, N. and S. Carolina. Is it worth taking the time and extra miles to see Washington D.C.?
What shouldn’t we miss in Tennessee, Arkansas and Texas?
And what about New Mexico and Arizona?
We want to experience both the great American cities and some of the awesome American nature and scenic spots like Grand Canyon and the great Redwood forests ect.
We’ve both been in the US before, but only in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Seattle, New York and Chicago.
