There was only one time I have left Texas (Sadly), but it was to visit Mississippi, and its a wonderful state for tourists. We even got to see a water spout, although I believe that doesnt happen most of the time. An almost non destructive force of nature that is beautiful.

Still, I also recommend going there for the stores. They are the best. Expensive, but you can buy pretty much anything for memories.

Please do not try to buy a gun here. There are several reasons that you will be wasting your money. Also, if you go to the south, dont expect to see cowboys.
Good luck, and I hope that your visit goes well.

Well i'm really in the very early stages at the moment so i don't have a clue where i want to go or anything yet, i've just had enough of doing the same old sh** every day of my life right now and got inspired by this: This is The Perfect U.S. Road Trip According to Scientists - The Bold Italic - San Francisco

Now that says 2 - 3 months so i'm way off being able to do all of it, not even half of it, but i can take inspiration from it.

I think i'd be looking at starting in Florida maybe and then heading up north east direction? But then it all depends on how my research goes over the next couple of months.

I've also been thinking about a camper van, to hire it looks like around $2,200 ish. How risky do you think it would be to buy 1 for $5,000? (around that kinda money) and then try and sell it a week before i leave? Even if i make a $1,000 loss or more it's still going to be cheaper than hiring???

And since you don't have a permanent address here it'll be double tuff to get plates and insurance for it.
Then when you go back, what you gonna do with the big white elephant?

By "double tuff" he means impossible. I don't know of any state that will issue plates and tags without insurance and a drivers license (showing residency and legal standing).

You beat me to posting that 'best road trip' link

For a hotel, you're going to pay an average of $80-$100/night. So, it might still be cheaper to simply rent a car and sleep in a hotel. You can rent a car from a company in town A and return it in town B, so you don't have to make a circle. With a week, why not take the old route 66 through the southern states? Goes right up Pacific Coast Highway all the way back to New York. Fly in one place, rent a car and sleep as you go, then fly out of the other, leaving the car there.

I would recommend the same. There is no reason to get a plate on a new car that will cost you so much more than renting one.

The garden of the gods in Colorado is an awesome site of huge natural rock formations. Also you can hit up Blackhawk where all the casino's are.
