Me and a friend are planning a two month long road trip in the states and have a number of questions, would really appreciate you guys' help!
We are both UK Citizens but he has a green card & his mum lives in Denver, CO.
We fly out to Miami on the 27th of July, and fly back from Las Vegas on 3rd September. Currently the only fixed date events we have is my friends brothers birthday on 22 July in Denver.
We have a rough and ready route we plan to take, created only by putting some waypoints of things to see on google maps and drawing the fastest line between them, it is by NO means a fixed route and we would really appreciate suggestions for deviations from the current plotted path.
We both know exceptionally little about US geography & about what places are good to see so your expertise will really be appreciated.
We are looking to do a bit of everything, from hiking to museums to BIG nights out. Any and all recommendations really really appreciated.
Q1. Best way to buy and insure a car?
Q2. Best way to sort out money for the trip? We have £, whats the best way to get $ for the whole trip? Dont want to be carrying large amounts of cash
Q3. What travel insurance do we need / should we get?
Q4. What do we need to book for national park visits other than the $80 year pass?
Q5. What to do about a car and NYC, have heard its terrible to drive into the city.
Q6. Accomodation solutiosn - we want a variety of places, cheap gross motels to fancy hotels to picturesque camp sites.
Q7. Nice parts of the national parks to visit? Esp Yosemite. I love photography and would love to get snaps of some of the most beautiful parts.
More questions to come!
Thank you so so much in advance
