Hi, we are thinking of doing a roadtrip starting in Chicago and ending in Denver, initially we were thinking of going along the I-80 or the US-20 through Iowa and Nebraska, but now thinking going via the I-90 through Minnesota and South Dakota might be more interesting as it would go past Badlands and Black Hills Forest area. We have 9 days to do this, is it being too ambitious, especially if we want to stop and take in a few sights, rather than just drive and drive? Anyone have preferences as to which route they would take?
We are then going to fly Denver-San Francisco and spend 10 days driving from SF to Las Vegas, and see a national park along the way.
Thanks for any advice !
