New to this forum and first time out west traveler looking for some ideas and advice.
Trying to put together a workable 16 day road trip in August to Yellowstone and other stops along the way. Right now I am looking at leaving the Detroit area and heading to South Dakota via HWY 90. We want to make stops in Badlands, Black Hills, and at Mt. Rushmore for sure. Then on into Yellowstone and the Tetons. Based on other attractions, I would like to take either HWY70 or 80 for the return trip back to Detroit.
I am interested in other recommended stops along the way as well as input on trying to do this in 16 days or less.
Additional information: We are a family of four with a mini schnauzer dog. Kids ages are 15 and 11. We will be pulling our travel trailer so we are also looking for recommendations on campgrounds and whether we need to make reservations ahead of time.
Please let me know any recommendations/advice you may have!
