When it comes to road trips, the best of the best has to be taking a road trip from New York to California. This is a major bucket list item, and there’s no better time to make the trip than now.
If you drew a straight line from New York City to California, it would measure about 2,500 miles.
Realistically, a New York to California road trip, no matter the route, should be done over the course of at least a week. The best family road trip, coast to coast, could take about 3 weeks.
Beginning this epic cross-country road trip, the starting point is the one and only Big Apple. You’re setting off to see this great country, but it’s only right that you enjoy The City first.
Traveling through the beautiful Pennsylvania landscape, you’ll cover nearly 470 miles when you arrive in Ohio’s capital.
There are tons of things to see and do in this great city, as well as nearby scenic drives in Illinois to easily make this more than just an overnight stop.
Checking out the impressive Iowa State Capitol is a definite must when in town. You can easily pick up provisions at the Downtown Farmers’ Market, considered one of the best in the country.
