Road Trip!

Brent Couchman
The other day Keith & I were talking about traveling.  He said sometime in the next 5 years, we will drive down to the West Coast of North America.  So, naturally, that means I want to start planning where to go & what to see right now.  Any time I come across a blog post suggesting a restaurant or some place to check out, I bookmark it.  Even if it's on the other side of North America.  Because I might someday be there, ha!  (I don't know how many menus I have read for restaurants that are thousands of miles away.)  I also bookmarked this website a while ago, Roadside America.  It's filled with all kinds of strange & interesting things to check out on your road trip. 

So here is the map that I just quiiiiiiiiickly created... who knows what way we will actually go.  I know Keith would like to stop in Vegas and at the Grand Canyon.  And wants to come back through Canada instead of the States.   Is there anything to check out on this route?  Or are you on this route at all?
Have you ever gone on a cross-country road trip?


  1. Oh, I love it! I want to go on a road trip like this!
    Also, I am kinda close to where you want to go (SF is only an hour and a half from me ;)).... just FYI. :)

    seriously, I'll fit in the trunk.
    I have always wanted to do this ahhh :)

  3. Oh you would be SO CLOSE to me! If you just kept going north in Utah we could hang out! But, if you must stick to Southern Utah, you have to visit at least one of the national parks, and I would recommend Arches first, and Bryce Canyon second. I don't know if those are exactly on your route, but if you're down there anyway either one would be worth the detour.

    And if you're driving down highway 99 in California, you'll go through my birth town of Chico. It's nothing special, but I like it and I was born there. :)

  4. Aah...mister husband and I are hoping to do a trip through Canada that way, one day! Well...to the East Coast. lol. :) You should come visit me in Vancouver on your way!!

  5. I'm doing a road trip from NYC to Miami, stopping in Nashville and New Orleans in between. Road trips are the best! I love researching them too. I've done the West Coast (along the PCH) and it's absolutely incredible. Make sure to bring a good camera! Especially for the Grand Canyon. How fun!

  6. Meeeee..... I am awesome. There are lots of awesome things to do in Portland, Oregon. Theres a coastal highway along oregon which is way prettier than the middle of the state... keep that in mind!

  7. Also, cant you and I just road trip to Kayla????

  8. I took a road trip in 2009 visiting 38 of the states-- took me about 6 months. If you are looking for any tips, stops, or suggestions, just give a holler! have fun!
