Bridging two iconic cities, this is a road trip that features amazing national parks, quirky landmarks, and the spirit of America. Learn about Navajo culture, play the odds in Vegas, bask in genuine Southern hospitality, and get your cowboy on in Texas. Centrally located hostels in the cities and campsites in the wilderness keep you in the heart of the action no matter where you are. With so much heart and soul and tons to see and do on the road to New Orleans, dont leave your heart in San Francisco because youre going to need it.
