Driving from Central NJ to Huntington Beach, CA - Route Question

Jump to last reply

I am driving with my husband and dog from central NJ to Huntington Beach, CA during the last 2 weeks of August. I was planning on taking Route 70 across for the most part then dropping down thru Arizona then across. I was going with this route instead of what I have seen referred to as the southern route. I was avoiding the southern route due to many posts I have seen saying that the northern route is more scenic and a lot safer and I would also like to avoid going thru New Mexico.

Would anyone be able to confirm that my game plan of using Route 70 during the Summer is the better, more scenic, safer route.

Any other helpful driving tips for this road trip would be appreciated.

Thank you!
