  1. Default Planning road trip from Chicago to New York

    Hi there! My husband and kids would like to plan a road trip from Chicago to New York this summer. I'm sure someone has done this before!! We'd like to see Hershey, PA, the Liberty Bell, Ground Zero, and anything else others might recommend. Any thoughts or tips? We are planning to go this summer 2007 for 10 days. Both my husband and I will drive, and we figure we can drive up to 6 hours per day so we can stay a day or two in some of the places. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    Welcome to the RoadTrip America forum!

    The trip from Chicago to Hershey will take about two days, given 6 hours a day. This is a comfortable pace to travel, especially with young ones. This will get you about 320 miles a day, putting you roughly in the Cleveland, OH vicinity at the end of the first day, and in Hershey at the end of the second day.

    Are your interests primarily in the historic areas of the country? Outside Philadelphia is Valley Forge
    New York alone has so much to see you could easily spend the entire time there.

    In the general vicinity, possibly on the way back home, you could stop at the Crayola factory in Easton, PA
