Your conviction will not necessarily preclude you from traveling out of state, but you want to make sure your probation officer knows about the travel.
A DUI defense attorney would really help you here.

If you are awaiting trial, you will need permission from the court and sign a waiver of extradition. As my colleagues have indicated, if you have already been convicted, you just need permission from your probation officer. Good luck and have an awesome trip.
