we would like to ask your help and extensive experience with our trip itinerary.
We are a couple, both 31 years old, This is not our first time in the U.S. but it will be our first time travelling (and probably last in the near future, so we want to do and see as much as possible).
We already purchased the ticket, we will be landing in Los Angeles 2/9 and departure from JFK 10/10.
We have several anchors, places and things we really really want to see and do, but overall we don’t mind changing our plan if something won’t work out.
Were both love the outdoors, like camping , sightseeing and quaint places.
This is our “dream” itinerary, we hope it will be practical enough to implement…
