Lessons Learned
  • In New York do not ever go over the GW bridge! ever!! Five words to remember "Take the Tappan Zee Bridge."
  • The Hard Rock Cafe brochure with locations map can serve as a basis for any cross-country U.S. road trip. Hard Rock has already done all the leg work to find cities in great areas. Pick the locations you would like to visit and then connect the dots.
  • Need inspiration for things to do? TripAdvisor is a good resource for ideas on things to do.
  • For traveling as a pair consider opening a joint bank account for trip expenses.
