Hi everyone/anyone

mark from UK
taking the wife and 21 year old twins on a road trip!!

so just booked flights to Chicago - arriving 28th march 2018
return from Lax on 14th April 2018

im looking for any suggestions/ or complete trips. ideas.

we have been to grand canyon and Vegas twice so we dont need to deviate with long side trips. also have been to LA twice before so no need for more than a day or so.
id like to stay true to the route - but obviously a young generation also want to have some things to do along way. and only other thing we definitely need to do is a night or two diversion to Sedona to meet friends from phoenix.

all comments appreciated - helpful ones 😉 - p.s. sorry if this type of post has been up 100's of times before

Hi Mark

It can be quiet but it might also be to do with the enormity of your question! It's a difficult one and my suggestion would simply be to research this website for ideas and also to open up a big map of the USA on your living room floor and look at places that could inspire a visit.

A mate and I deviated to southern New Mexico and visited Spaceport America (Truth or Consequences) and to the north for Monument Valley.

4,500 miles in 18 days. Yeah!!'

paul - thanks
i know its a big question... im just trying to do a bit of planning with actual peoples experiences - especially if they've done same time year/amount of time /with grown up kids!

i did monument valley a few years ago so wont need that big deviation. but was thinking antelope canyon on my Sedona days....

im searching on here - using EZ66 guide... on other sites. just wondering about real life peoples tho!
