Road trip from San Francisco to Orlando

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone,

My boyfriend and I are doing a road trip from San Francisco to Orlando, starting at the end of October for about six weeks. Our route so far is San Fran - Las Vegas - Grand Canyon - Arches/Canyonlands in Utah - Santa Fe/Roswell - San Antonio - Fort Worth - New Orleans - Memphis - Nashville - Smoky Mountains - Charleston - Savannah - Orlando.

We're planning about 2-3 days in each place (more in Orlando and San Fran)

I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for other places we should stop at along the way? Or stop interesting places to stop for a couple of hours to break up some of the long hours of driving? And do you think seeing this many places is doing too much?

We're also a little concerned about the weather this time of year - how cold does it get in these places around this time of year? We'll be mostly camping.

Thanks!
