Places to see on a road trip?
July 13, 2006 12:55 AM Subscribe
A friend and I are taking a long drive from Philadelphia to Taos, NM.
Which route should we take, and what should we see along the way, particularly in terms of national parks and campsites? What sites and campgrounds are a must? And what's some good advice for two people planning to be on the road for about a week?

We're planning on taking our sweet time getting there, and are looking to camp along the way, rather than sleeping in hotels, so advice from anyone with experience in this regard would be greatly appreciated. We have no idea what route we want to take (straight west? through the south?) so suggestions in that area would be welcomed. We've no real desire to stop in any major cities along the way, unless there are very compelling reasons, so great national parks and other places to visit are what we're looking for.
My friend and I are not seasoned outdoorsmen, so we'd like to avoid camping that has us braving the elements. Just places to put up a tent, sleep, and do some hiking.
