Well, before my tour starts I’m going to be travelling the east coast mostly – New York, Vermont, Pennsylvania, Washington DC.
Then I’m on the Northern Escape Tour which starts in Chicago and runs through South Dakota, Wyoming, and Utah (to name a few) down to the Grand Canyon, and then Vegas before ending in LA.
I did have a look at Contiki’s southern tour options but they start from LA the day before my tour ends so that’s not going to work <!--graemlin::)-->.
I must admit though, the more I look at the South the more appealing it’s getting. My main concern is that it’s going to be pricey. Don’t want to run out of money three quarters of the way through my trip! <!--graemlin::D--> Also, I want to make sure I spend time in the right cities and don’t waste money going somewhere that’s not all that worthwhile.
I did the Grand Southern tour this past winter, and it was amazing. I absolutely LOVED the south, and had a ton of fun in all of the cities we visited. Texas was great- if you can make it work, I highly recommend visiting.
Memphis was also great- make sure you make it to Graceland if you stop there…. and from what I recall of New Orleans…it was also great- a place I plan to return to!
Good luck planning the last leg of your trip <!--graemlin::)-->
Have you thought about doing places like Santa fe, NM and Albequerque? Also Grand Canyon (a few days for hiking). Denver, Colorado is awesome. You could hit Estes Park and many other great areas. Glacier national Park in Montana is awesome. There’s tons of stuff to do and see. You could rent a vehicle (if over 25) and travel on your own.
Yes. I had visited Atlanta once and my trip was just awesome.I planned my trip with a triphobo. They are one of the best trip planners i ever seen.You can also check itineraries for Atlanta and for all over the world on their site.
