Re: USA 2020 - Itinerary
This is all great, I'm taking lots of notes. Thanks folks
My biggest hurdle at the moment is the logistics of the whole thing going coast to coast.
I have a list of the main places we want to stay or visit in the time we have (roughly 19 days). The only drawback is the travelling time on some of the longer journeys.
For instance, I've changed the first one to Los Angeles because it's better to go straight to San Francisco and start our holiday there. From there we will possibly go to Long Beach to stay for the LA sightseeing. This will be less of a journey to Flagstaff afterwards.
Then the biggest internal flight will be from there to Boston. It's too far, so I'm thinking of adding Chicago - but then again that's still a long way from Arizona.
A possible solution is cutting back a day or two from LA or New York to make a two night stop at either Kansas City or St. Louis, right in the middle. But then we end up with too many flights and hotel moves, so it's a big issue really.
We will get there eventually and it's all very interesting trying to figure it all out!
I'm sure I'll arrive at something before we see the travel agent for advice and flight/hotel bookings in October!
