Can we 'fill in' 2 months, New Orleans, to Yellowstone & points in between?

Jump to last reply

We find ourselves in the wonderful position to head overseas again for two months or so, from around about March next year. We love Europe and have spent quite a bit of time there over the last 2 years. I'm pushing for Europe again, DH is toying with the idea of coming and in his words, "finishing off' parts of the US that we haven't seen.

We love to drive, just wanted to clear that up first :-) In 2009 we spent time driving from San Diego up to San Francisco then to Vegas via Yosemite. On that same trip we flew to NYC and spent time travelling up into New England. We've previously visited Orlando to take the kids to Disney World (twice), NYC, Chicago and also the West coast that trip too.

So we'd like to see some more of the 'middle bit'! He was thinking arriving into Dallas (ease of flights from Australia) heading south, then up to Memphis and we'd also love to see Yellowstone. So that’s pretty much as far as we've got. We will both be 50 (ahhhh) next year, we're active, well travelled. Our interests are mostly smaller towns, great scenery, National Parks and gentle interesting walks/hikes. As for big city's we like to avoid staying in them, but we enjoy visiting for a day or so to see the highlights. Food & wine are a big part of our trips. But I see we could drive up through Oklahoma, Colorado & Wyoming where I can only imagine there would be wonderful scenery, which we would love.

So what’s your thoughts? I always like to start here and get some 'must do's/sees along the way and start thinking out a route. We don't usually book too much accommodation ahead of time, we like to be flexible in case we find a real gem we can stay longer etc.

Thanks as always,
Deidre
