I’m doing a driving holiday to the States this year in September with a couple of mates. We’re looking at a total of three weeks with the following stops:
Las Vegas from the 5th – 8th September (The Grand Canyon, big casinos etc)
LA from the 8th – 10th (Hollywood sign, Mann’s Chinese Theater, Walk of Fame, Universal Studios)
San Francisco 10 – 12th (Golden Gate, Fisherman’s Wharf, Alcatraz)
from there we’ll be traveling north to Oregon and on to Mount Saint Helens in Washington state. Then it’s east to Yellowstone Park and Mount Rushmore continuing east (we may stay over in Chicago for a night if we’re on time) to the next hotel stop in:
Toronto from 21st – 22nd (Niagra Falls) and then finally to:
New York from 23rd – 26th (Empire State, Times Square, Central Park, Statue of Liberty, maybe a Broadway show)
A map explains the plan easier:

Anyhow, it’s clear that we’ll be covering a lot of miles. There’ll be 3 of us driving (pending me passing my test) so we’ll split it up as we go. I’ve been using TripIt.com to plan out the days, routes etc and it’s a great web app, highly recommended.
Here’s where you come in. Have you been to any of the cities above? What would you recommend we see?
