    How much do you pay for car rentals? I want to do this too.

      None. I'm with someone who's moving so he'd rather do the roadtrip than pay to have his car shipped/plane tickets

    I'd recommend...
    >Explore the Big Bear region, or the Idyllwild region
    >Joshua Tree NP
    >Amboy Rd from 29 Palms up through Mojave National Preserve if you want to see more desert
    >Otherwise CA-62 to Parker / Lake Havasu City. Enjoy the lakefront scene at Havasu
    >Consider Grand Canyon West
    >Grand Canyon South Rim
    >Go hiking around Flagstaff, check out Sedona
    >Instead of I-40, take AZ-260 from Camp Verde through Payson, Show Low, Springerville
    >Check out the White Mountains
    >North on US-191 then east on AZ-61/NM-53 to the Grants area
    >I-40 to Albuquerque
    >Take US-550 out of Bernalillo, loop through Los Alamos, drop down into Santa Fe
    >Take NM-68 up to Taos, explore the Enchanted Circle region, visit the Taos High Bridge, come down the canyon of the Cimarron River on US-64, hop on US-412 and hit the plains
    >Alternately, head north from Questa into the San Luis Valley, visit Crestone and Salida, then take US-50 east and follow the Arkansas River to Wichita, more or less
    >Ozarks / Lake of the Ozarks

      Is petrified forest worth it? I've heard mixed things on here about it. I've been to Joshua Tree, death Valley and grand canyon at this point

    Don't drive that route in the summer. It'll be fricking miserable hot. Here's the route that you should take instead.

    Go North up to Yosemite National Park. Then cut through the park and take 395 North up to South Lake Tahoe. Then Park City, Vail, Denver, Kansas City, Louisville, Philadelphia. There is so much more to see and do on this route. Adding Yosemite Lake Tahoe and Colorado is worth the 8 or 9 extra hours of driving.

        Several people have already told you that this route is terrible. If you've already made up your mind, why ask for advice?

        That route literally hits all of my least favorite places in the US. Albuquerque, Amarillo, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, St Louis. Indianapolis. The only good thing you'll see is the Grand Canyon, and it'll be 100 degrees when you get there. You'll spend 30 minutes and leave.

          You forgot LA.
          Why do people always pick the worst most boring interstates for road trips? There's a lot of cool roads in the west and I-40 and 70 ain't it.

          I would suggest driving to Denver then getting off the interstate entirely. Drive south to Durango from there check out Silverton, Mesa Verde and go from there to Monument Valley, the Navajo rez, end up at Flagstaff, go to the Grand Canyon and then take old 66 down to Kingman and from there go to Vegas. Or, go from Denver west trough Gunnison, check out the Black Canyon, go to Telluride then from there to Moab, UT and go to Arches and Canyonlands, head south from there to Monument Valley and then do the Arizona portion the same as above.

          isn't worth specifically going through Amarillo, one of the ugliest parts of America, though I too have always wanted to stop at the steak place there but never have. You do see a lot of cows around there.

              Well let's just clear that up then. According to OP, this was his original route based on the rejected suggestions that you he already did. Looks to me like you already saw the good stuff. Might as well just fly back home to the worst city in the US.

                There's no way he did Yellowstone, Yosemite, Arches, Mount Rushmore, Lake Tahoe, and Colorado in one trip. That dude is full of shit.

                OP is moronic. Colorado is 300 miles tall and 400 miles wide. You can't drive through it once on route 70 and just say, "welp, I did Colorado". The 550 from Ouray to Durango is one of the greatest roads in the US. You'd have to be moronic to drive through the Texas panhandle to eat BBQ instead of cutting through the interior of Colorado and seeing some of the best scenery and small towns in the US. That's a fact.

                I think you're missing the point. There are probably dozens of routes through Colorado. You took one route. What he's saying is that any route through Colorado is better than driving across northern Texas, which I totally agree with. After reading through this thread, it seems like no one thinks your idea is a good one. You probably should have posted your original route too to clarify.

                You're missing the point. I'm literally on the fast route. Adding time to go drive through Colorado which I've already done and have lived in Colorado springs doesn't mean anything. Your Autism just causes you to focus on one specific state kek

              Trust me once you go to Amarillo you won't believe people actually choose to live there.
              >locations through the states of Florida, Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona, Colorado, and New Mexico
              So its not even special... You can literally get "Rudys" in any mid size city between Louisiana and California. Ok then.
              OP if you must go through Amarillo at least go to the giant steak place for the meme. Or do something different and drive through the Oklahoma panhandle just to say you did instead of literally the busiest coast to coast freeway.

    The proper way to do this trip is to drive North to Yellowstone National Park. Drive up through Big Sky Montana to Bozeman and then turn east. Hit Billings, Deadwood, Rapid City, Mount Rushmore, The Devil's Tower, The Badlands, Chicago, Cedar Point and Pittsburgh. That's a good fricking route. I did it 10 years ago with a crazy vegan chick I was dating. We crashed a random high school reunion in Sioux Falls and got fricking wrecked drinking $2 shots.

      They charge a premium at most car rental places for a point to point rental. But, there are some car rental places that will let you do this without charging up the ass. To be honest, My advice would be to do a west coast loop instead. Start in LA, Salt Lake City or Vegas. Just make a big circle. All the best shit is on the west coast anyway. New York and DC are the only cities worth doing on the east coast. Save that for another trip.

          If you're doing this in the fall, this route would be even better. You could Sedona. Route 1 is actually closed in Bug Sur this year, but that drive up the coast is the prettiest drive I've ever done in my life. It may be open next year. Pismo Beach, Zion National Park, Escalante, Muir Woods and Santa Barbara are also definitely worth adding to the route and doing too. That's 3 weeks worth of stuff. Honestly, I wouldn't spend less than 3 nights in Yosemite and at least 2 in Bryce. You'll feel robbed when you leave Yosemite and there are hikes you didn't get to do.
