  1. Default Butte, MT to Lancaster, PA

    In July my husband and I are taking our two grandkids on vacation. We are traveling from Butte, Montana to Lancaster, PA. We are driving and looking for attractions and motels with pools to stay at. We are looking at driving about 600 miles a day and are in need of info.

    Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum! Everyone should go to Butte at least once. It is a stunning location -- especially with summer thunderstorms!

    Six hundred miles a day is really pushing the envelope for kids -- how old are these would-be roadtrippers? A good tool for finding those motels with pools is our reservation booking service. I assume you will be heading down I-90 though South Dakota -- you might find Peter's field report interesting since I would guess that Rapid City will be your first stop? Custer State Park is pretty cool.

    Default What's the Rush?

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America forum.

    I have to agree with Mark on this. There are a whole lot of wonderful sights and glorious adventures on the road from Montana to Pennsylvania that you're planning to take your grandchildren right by without so much as a stop. Aside from the fact that such a marathon would be hard on them, they will miss out on all the history and beauty, as well as the chances to experience regional differences and get some exercise, along the way. As a grandparent myself who has taken two young boys on RoadTrips, I implore you to keep your per day mileage to something much more reasonable and let your grandchildren experience the journey as something more than guppies looking out of a fishbowl.
