Planning that far ahead is very smart. It gives you time to really plan what you want to do and come up with a reasonable budget, so you aren’t having to live off granola bars on Day 3 or miss out on doing things because you don’t have enough money to eat and participate in activities. I know many of you love to wear those travel pants with all the packets but you look ridiculous in it in the evening. You also announce to the whole world, I’m a tourist. I don’t deny its practicality and if you have enough space for heaven’s sake bring one but no other apparel item can match the light, washable pair of black slacks.
North Carolina has some of the east coast’s most well known and best beaches. The Outer Banks, which runs from the northeastern coast of North Carolina south to Ocrakoke Island, is a series of interconnected sand spits and barrier islands protecting the coast of the state. It’s high sand dunes and many lighthouses like Cape Hatteras Lighthouse are a huge attraction for tourists and beach goers.
Thanks ma’am Thelma. This article was really very helpful. Anyway, how much would be the range of fare for the dog in an airplane? I am planning to import an alapaha blue blood bulldog puppy from the states. Im still figuring out if it’s worth the cost, tho.
Further north, you’ll find West Quoddy Head Lighthouse on the Maine-Canada border. This striped lighthouse is a photographer’s favorite for its eyecatching horizontal red and white nautical stripes. From Quoddy Head, you’ll be able to take scenic Route 191 south to Bar Harbor and more of the Maine coast. The rugged coastline along 191, 187, and Route 1 have been dubbed Maine’s Big Sur for its dramatic, steep cliffsides and breathtaking views. The other Big Sur on the Pacific Coast is over 3600 miles away to the west (that’s nearly 3 days straight of driving).

This was very helpful. We are planning a trip in 2013 and the train is still an option. We are going from California to Washington DC. I have driven it but spent my childhood riding the trains and want to share that experience with my husband and child. Things have changed (not always for the best) but I love train travel.
