This book, (Written by a Tim & Eric) is a guide and a diary of our 5000 mile, four week road-trip from California to New Jersey with a focus on seeing the best of America, and eating at some of the most noted restaurants along the way. We have also included information for those that would like to extend their own road trip to include New England sights through Cape Cod, MA. The total cost of the trip was about $10,000 for two people, including all meals, gas, lodging, park fees, light shopping, snacking, and gambling in Las Vegas. This book contains a GPS list of points and an address guide that follows our route and includes area restaurants and what their specialty items are.•Napa, CA •Russian River, CA •Sonoma, CA •San Francisco, CA •Yosemite National Park, CA •Carmel, CA •Pacific Coast Highway •Hearst Castle, CA •Los Angeles, CA •San Diego, CA •Las Vegas, NV •Hoover Dam, NV •Grand Canyon, AZ •Page, AZ•Monument Valley, UT •Moab, UT •Arches National Park, UT •Denver, CO •Loveland , CO •Kansas City, MO •St Louis, MO •Mammoth Cave, KY •Charlottesville, VA •Luray Caverns, VA •Washington, DC •Philadelphia, PA •Bordentown, NJ•Manhattan, NY •Mystic Seaport, CT •Boston, MA •Provincetown, MA.

Our trip was a wonderful success, so much so that I felt that I should write this book and share the experience and advice with others. Though many choose to take pre-packaged tours, I find them to be expensive, and rarely meet the needs of those with mobility issues. They rush through sites, and have schedules that may be too rigorous for an older parent. I hope the advice I share here will help others considering a similar adventure.
Budgets can be tight and our author has found ways to explore beach locations without breaking the bank. Author Eric Gibbons & photographer Tim Lin have lived in coastal communities all their lives and have traveled to beaches all over the world from Main to Key West, and Seattle to San Diego, Hawaii, The Red, Black, Dead, and Mediterranean Seas, Japan, Greece, Korea, as well as lakes and rivers of all sizes.
This book will cover how avid beachgoers like Tim & Eric make it all work in very simple ways so you too can have a great experience wherever you travel.
This book excludes information about RV travel and booking expensive resorts, focusing instead on the “do-it-yourself” traveler. Families that travel together will have additional concerns not addressed here but likely part of any travel adventure, beach or not. Water safety is something families should become aware of before traveling to any beach location.
