Kylee,

I am here to help. Where are you starting from?
When do you plan to travel? How much time do you have? Have you selected the city that you would like to start in?
What kind of budget do you have? Will you be renting a car or will you utilize public transportation?

I will be more than happy to help you but I'll need a few details. Reply to this

Well, we are starting from northern california and It will be in about a year in a half. It's a graduation road trip for a group of 5 people. We don't have a first destanation planned yet and it's a very small buget for students. We have our own transportation.

Thank you for the help 😊 Reply to this

Wow-- sounds like you are planning a great trip. Going with 5 friends will be fun.


A southern trip - LA California, Las Vegas New Mexico, Tuscon Arizona, Carlsbad New Mexico, San Antonio Texas, Galvaston Texas, New Orleans Louisana, Dallas Texas, Alberquerque New Mexico, Santa Fe New Mexico, Flagstaff Arizona, and then head back home.

You can go all the way to the Texas coast and go swimming. The water is warm unlike the Pacific Ocean. You can listen to music in New Orleans.

You could travel north to Portland Oregon, Seattle Washington, Vancouver Canada. That would be a wonderful drive and plenty of fun in those beautiful cities.

I'm not sure what you are asking?

You said you'd have a car. So, you'll need luggage and a camera unless you are planning to camp in tents. Reply to this

A reliable car, cell phones, emergency kit. Once you decide where you are going you might want to get a trip tik from AAA. Reply to this

At AAA auto service you can request an electronic map for your trip. It provides a lot of great information and tells you where to expect road construction. Plus it gives you some nice maps to look at as you drive along. Reply to this
