One of the friends with me on my recent Algarve trip is B, from Texas – and we’re planning a roadtrip, possibly next year, through the American Southwest. I’ve visited B in Texas before a few times, but I have always longed to see more of the Southwest. Monument Valley and Vegas and the Grand Canyon and Zion National Park and Roswell and Sante Fe…
So that’s what we’re planning. Nevada, Utah, New Mexico and Arizona, probably starting in Vegas and finishing up in Phoenix, but we may do a full loop and finish back in Vegas again, depending on what’s on the route.
I’ve started plotting a rough trip using Roadtrippers, and I’m on the hunt for suggestions! What are your must-sees, your hidden gems, your definitely-worth-its? The best cheap motels, the best milkshake and burger joints, the strange quirky highlights! One of the things I love best about roadtrips in the States are all the weird and wonderful sites just off the highways, the things you pull off to see on a whim.
Now I just have to stop buying so many clothes so I can afford it!
