6 Weeks in the U.S

Jump to last reply

I have 6 weeks in the US from 1st of September till 12th of October. I'm thinking of splitting my trip with 4 weeks in the west and 2 in the east.

I'd see it shaping up

LA - 5 days
San Diego - 4 days
San Fran - 5 days
Vegas - 5 days
Grand Canyon - 1 day

Which gives me 7/8 days that I would like advice on how to spend them, even if the advice is that I am spending to long or too little a time in a certain location.

East is easier.

Washington - 4 days
Phily / Boston - 3 days
New York - 6 days

I'm a big sports fan and will be wanting to visit some of the great sporting stadiums on match days (if i'm lucky) or for tours.

These are all fairly obvious places to visit and the key to seeing them is that they are all reasonably close together. Is there anywhere else that would enhance my trip that I have missed out?

I have just ordered my Lonely Planet guide but booked my flights tonight so keen to make a start on it.

Thanks

David
