Thinking of Driving Around the Country......

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are considering a drive around the country and I wanted to get info from people that have done it regarding the amount of days needed to do it right. We've tossed several ideas in our head. 1 week, 2 weeks, drive the entire country up north and then back via south, fly to middle and then drive the midwest and west and then fly back home, all kinds of ideas. We are not the driving type but I can do a decent amount on vacations ( I hate local driving). Probably around 4-5 hours would be max per day. We just want to allow enough time to enjoy what we see and spend extra time in some places. Our goal is not to get across coountry and back in a speed race just to say we did it. Based on calculations, it seems we would need at least three weeks to do it right.

We line outside of Washington D.C., this is why we have considered skipping the east coast area and jumping straight to the middle.
