My friend and I are planning a trip to the US at the end of December this year. We are working on a rough draft itinerary, but having a bit of trouble finalising days/places etc. First time doing something like this, and any help would be much appreciated!
We want to spend the first week or so in New York, visiting friends and exploring. Then head on to Miami (Disney - Orlando), via Philadelphia and Nashville (if possible). After there, go to New Orleans. I absolutely love the idea of the 'South' and am keen to experience it first hand. What else is in that area that we shouldn't miss? Of course seeing Vegas and the Grand Canyon would be amazing, before finishing off in LA for a day or two and potentially SF?
In summary, I would really like any tips for the places I have mentioned above, and any towns/citys/must-see-places. Thank you ahead of time!
