Pam & Melissa:
After successfully completing our road trip of 6225 miles, we have compiled a list of “the best and worst” from our trip!
BEST HOTEL: The Peninsula, Beverly Hills (simply perfection)
WORST HOTEL: The Beverly Hilton, Beverly Hills (mold= not good)
EASIEST MOUNTAIN DRIVE: California I-80
HARDEST MOUNTAIN DRIVE: Bryce Canyon to Las Vegas (we were fairly sure that we were going to die the whole time)
FAVORITE DRIVE: 17 mile highway in Monterrey, California
LEAST FAVORITE DRIVE: Paris, Texas to Albuquerque, New Mexico (8+ hours on one lane roads made for a looooooong drive)
BEST BEDS: The Bellagio, Las Vegas (like sleeping on air)
WORST BEDS: The Beverly Hilton, Beverly Hills (this hotel was just really awful)
BEST SERVICE: Mandarin Oriental, San Francisco
BEST TEA SERVICE: The Peninsula, Beverly Hills (with honorable mention to the Peabody Hotel in Memphis for their delectable scones)
BEST SHOPPING: Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills (of course!)
MOST HONEST PEOPLE: Albuquerque, New Mexico (We went to a car wash there where they found our checkbook in the car and gave it back to us, all checks in-tact)
BEST WEATHER: Santa Fe, New Mexico (We would live here just for the weather alone)
WORST WEATHER: Monterrey, CA
FAVORITE CITY: San Francisco, CA (land of the best dim sum on the planet, we are convinced)
LEAST FAVORITE CITY: Memphis, TN (a little too deserted for our liking)
BEST FOOD: The Bellagio, Las Vegas (there is a good reason that their buffet is king)
WORST FOOD: Our stop-over in Missouri, because there were legitimately no restaurants for a two hour time span
FAVORITE THING: Hoodoos at Bryce Canyon National Park, Utah (you gotta see them!)
FAVORITE MEMORY: Accidentally stumbling upon the famous overlook in Bryce Canyon, Utah
MELISSA: We absolutely loved this trip and are so thankful that we got to experience it together. We hope that everyone enjoyed following our blog! Thanks!
PAM: We’ve made it safely home. Two women, one car, 6,225 miles! Thanks for all your prayers! Our trip was surely a once in a lifetime experience. For a woman who is psychotically fearful of strange hotels (mostly bugs) we had a wonderful time. I may never drive another mountain pass, but then again, maybe we’ll tour the east coast next summer!
