    Default From Chicago to LA in 5 days!

    Hello Road Trip Forum Community!

    I am moving to LA and need to be there on June 20th. A friend and I are planning on leaving Chicago on June 15th. We want to maximize our time and see all that we can in this short period of time. We're currently debating the northern route (Nebraska, Colorado, Utah, LV, to LA) vs. the southern route (going through OK, TX, NM, AZ, to LA). Which way is the most "do-able" in 5 days? And what are some "can't miss" sights?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Default Either Or

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    The two routes available to you differ by only about 100 miles and either is quite manageable over 4 days, so if you have 5 days to make the drive, you have the equivalent of a day to spend at various stops along the way. Major stops on each route ("Can't miss" is entirely up to you.) would include landmarks of the Oregon Trail, Rocky Mountain National Park, Arches National Park, Zion National Park and Las Vegas along the 'northern' route and St. Louis, the Oklahoma City Memorial, Santa Fe/Albuquerque, Painted Desert/Petrified Forest National Park, and the Grand Canyon on the 'southern' route.
