My DH and I have always wanted to do a cross country trip. Our kids are ages 9 and 11. I would love to start saving to do this next year. We live in NC and know that Yellowstone, Yosemite and Utah.
If anyone out there has done this, can you give tips, must see places, etc? Thanks!
We have done multiple cross country trips and feel that planning is the key to a successful trip.
Planning takes the stress out of a trip and allows you to plan stops and campgrounds that will have things for your children to do. Make sure you don't plan road days that are overly long because they can cause children to be very unhappy and parents that are very tired.
If you are planning on visiting Yellowstone and Yosemite make your reservations as early as they allow. The campgrounds in these parks fill up rapidly and reservations will allow you to be sure and have a spot. Visit the National Parks web site for more information and about the parks in Utah.
