Rough (very) initial USA itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hi
I'm starting to research our next major trip which is to be the US of A (I'm a tad excited I finally managed to convince MOH to go).

We have approx 6 weeks and coming from Perth, Australia.

My initial thoughts are:

- Washington DC - 4 nights
- Train to New York - 4 nights
Not sure of the best way from NY to Boston - plane or car?
- Boston - 3 nights
Rent a car
- Cape Cod - 3 nights
- Vermont area - 4 to 5 nights
Drop car back at Boston and fly to Charleston and rent another car
- Charleston - 4 nights
- Savannah - 3 nights
- Pensacola - 1 night
- New Orleans - 4 nights
Fly from NO to Salt Lake City and rent a car (or we could catch a connecting flight straight to Jackson Hole if the drive is not worth taking from Salt Lake City)
- Jackson Hole - 1 night
- Wyoming area - Dude Ranch/Park - 5 nights
- Elko - 1 night (stopover, approx half way point before Napa)
- Napa Valley - 3 nights
- San Francisco - 4 nights
Fly back to Perth

Some other info is that we enjoy scenery, good food and wine and travel will be in Sep/Oct next year.

I would appreciate any feedback and suggestions and any ideas on the mode of transport I have noted and if achievable.
