So a friend (possibly a few but right now its just one of my roommates) and I are going on a roadtrip this summer. Were taking a whole month and visiting anywhere we want in the U.S.

So far we know we want to visit New York, Portland, Seattle, and California. We want to see the grand canyon and climb a mountain, though were really not sure which mountain.

Anyone have any suggestions? Were trying to fill up a whole month here and we things to do, places to go, things to see. Were from Georgia, so we want to see as much of other cultures as possible and meet some cool people.

Love that scene.


Oklahoma has a bunch of Native American shit if that's your thing. Wouldn't be too far out if you're going west to Arizona or Colorado.

lol, so you've basically decided you want to go on a road trip to...every square inch in the country?

I'd pick one specific direction/route, like Route 66 then back through Texas.

The Grand Canyon is just a giant hole. Much like New Jersey.

If you've got the money for gas, friends you can tolerate, and the time, this would be a great trip. Sounds like the best part of your trip would be the beginning though. California, Oregon, and Washington are all beautiful states. Every time I drive to Seattle and back I contemplate moving to every town/city I pass through.

EDIT: But yeah, you might want to consult a map.

Seriously, you should take a class on planning road trips, TS.

Other than the natural terrain, the midwestern states are lame. They're basically one big state.

A friend and I once found a Soviet-era car in Belarus for $300. We wanted to fly to Belarus, buy the car, and go on a road trip all across Russia and into China. TS's length is pretty tame.

Obviously we wouldn't actually do that. Forgetting about the length, sketchiness of the car, and border issues, we wouldn't make it more than two kilometres into Russia before getting in a wreck and becoming dash cam fodder.


Really though, that is a long road trip. It could be done but I would advise against it. You've planned something that should be two different trips to be honest. I've driven through Nebraska, Wyoming, South Dakota, etc. multiple times and they are not worth spending all that time driving through unless there's a specific reason to go to those states.

95 up to new york, 66 west, california, alcan/route 1(??) north, portland, seattle, B.C., alaska, fly home from Anchorage/Fairbanks. Remember to stop at Burning Man.

Come to Las Vegas Nevada. Over priced alcohol, strip clubs, a bunch of mini theme parks, casinos, gambling, hookers from every price range, run into celeberties(I ran into Vinnie paul at my job and flavor flave at the stratosphere), decent metal scene, go snowboarding at Mt. Charleston, good buffets, go rock climbing at red rock. A bunch of shit to do here.

I feel so stupid for posting that. Nobody gives a **** about almost stories.

If you really want to go to Colorado, you could drive through the southern states to California (going out of your way a bit to see the Grand Canyon), then travel up through California to Seattle, than drive through Idaho/Montana/Wyoming (lol) to Colorado, and then back to Georgia.

Were taking a month to do this so were not planning to drive the whole thing in a week.

I know. You're original plan could be done, but that drive from Washington to New York would be one long drive. Plus, if it were me I'd want to spend multiple days in some of those cities.

So do we. You don't think a month is enough time to do that? A lot of the reason were doing this is to see the scenery and nature as well as see new people and cultures, so the journey is a lot of the cool part.

If you go all around the country it could be a bit rushed. I know it takes two days to go from Salt Lake City to Houston without stopping or doing anything. If you were to include staying a couple of days in each of these cities and exploring on the way there it can easily rack up time. (This is just an example; don't go to Salt Lake City. ) Applying that driving all the way from Georgia to California, California to Washington, Washington to New York, and New York back to Atlanta, I could see the ideal amount of time exceeding a month.

This is another good point. My 'ideal time' above wasn't meant to be consecutive.

I'd say you need more than a month to really see the whole country. Just driving across from East to West is going to take you a few days if you do nothing but drive non-stop.


I hope you have a lot of money for gas as well. That's going to add up much faster than you think.

I dont' see why everyone is complaining about the Seattle to New York thing. There is some cool stuff in the middle. Yellowstone first of all. But you could always stop in Chicago too, or a number of other cities.

If you're going to New York though, Philly, D.C. and Boston are worth it too. And Boston and D.C. are probably 8-9 hours (which is nothing compared to the driving you'll be doing) away from eachother with NYC and Philly inbetween, and all of them are pretty cool cities to check out.

If you're dead set on the 40 hour drive from coast to coast, take the southern route. Also go to Yosemite and Zion nat'l park. And if you're dead set on the 20 hour drive from Washington to So Cal, consider taking pacific coast highway. Scenic, but also gives you the option to end it all when you realize just how far you're driving.
This is why I don't like arguing on the internet.

I never understood why people complain about Boston. I get the impression this is based on grouchy cashiers at a few stores or something else that happens everywhere.
