My soon to be husband, and i are are starting to plan our road trip honeymoon. Sounds fancy eh.
We are starting from Southern Canada to Northern US.
There are only so many stops you can google, that are so over done or seen.
I was hoping some of you could suggest some must see spots. WE love everything from museums to dive bars, to walls that have neat carvings on them or sight seeing…
Our first U.S stop is Oak Harbour, then Seattle… and from there, we are trying to mark our spots. We will be traveling through early June 2014.

@Nikkimcq: When you say Northern US do you mean you’re going to hit Seattle and go East? Or are you going to continue South and, if so, how far?

@Nikkimcq: What’s your route? If you’re gonna go East from Seattle you’re gonna travel through a lot of nothing before you get back to civilization again. It’s pretty barren up there. I’d suggest traveling down the coast instead of along the north.

@Aquaria: Thanks a ton.
Thank you for the advice.
We planned to do Oak Harbor, Seattle, and then possibly portland. we are not opposed to going up, down aand aroundbut just have to make our way back east… doesnt matter how. We do have over two weeks to play with 🙂

Sounds like an awesome Honeymoon. I LOVE Road Trips… a fabulous way to see the world.
Be sure and check out TripAdvisor… they`ll have tons of great info for you. Be it Travel Guides – Reviews (Accommodations – Restaurants – Attractions) or the Forums where you can post Questions and chat with TA Destination Experts & Locals.
They even have a Road Trip Forum if you plan to visit more than one State, and want help with Route Planning / Road Side Attractions / Not to Be Missed Spots etc = http://www.tripadvisor.ca/ShowForum-g1-i12567-Road_Trips.html
Hope this helps,

@Nikkimcq: Those are good destinations, just stay away from places like Idaho and North Dakota. There’s nothing there.

We were actually thinking of possibly Idaho, because of the lake. What do you think?

If you are moving all the way to the northeastern US (I can’t tell exactly what your route is) but stop in Duluth, MN! So beautiful 🙂 lived there for 4 years, bigger city with a really small town feel lots of nature and cute shops!

Head to Yellowstone from the west coast, then you can hit Devil’s Tower, Mt Rushmore, Badlands, then Chicago, then a bunch of stuff east of Chicago. there is plenty to do along that type of route, history, museums, culture.

If you go all the way to the east coast, Newburyport, MA and Portsmouth, NH both have great downtown areas to just spend a day walking around in by the water. Cadillac Mountain in Maine looks gorgeous, that’s one place I’ve been dying to go to.
