  1. Default Minneapolis to Keystone, CO

    We're leaving on Saturday, July 7th and would like somewhere fun to stay about 10 hours from the cities, and then we'll drive the rest of the way on Sunday. Does anyone have suggestions? Thanks!

    Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum! Ummm. By the fastest possible route it is about 1270 miles between these two places and if you really intend to get there in two days, you will need to be on the road, at a minimum 11 hours each day and travel at least 70 mph (where possible, but you will be unable to average much over 58 mph due to traffic, construction and other normal delays on this route). Grand Island, Nebraska is about as far as you are likely to get in 10 hours, although I might wish to push on to Ogallala, or even Fort Morgan, CO, so you can enjoy your day going over the Colorado Rockies.

    If you do make it to Fort Morgan -- there is a really beautiful historic bridge, just outside of town:
