need advice for NY to PHOENIX 10-day drive

Jump to last reply

Hello -

Driving cross country is something I've always wanted to do.

I have to be in Phoenix the first week of August.

I would like to take around 10 days to make the drive from New York City to Phoenix.

The two "adult drivers" (myself included) are in our 30's but there would be two teenagers (17 and 18 years old) on the trip as well.

I would GREATLY APPRECIATE any advice on a possible route, day-by-day driving itinerary, (safe) places to see and (safe) places to stay. (plan to drive a rental... hostels welcome to keep price down).

Thank you for any time and help you can give!
