    Default Marietta, GA to Davis, CA in 7 days!

    This is my first post on this forum - thanks for the great resource!

    We're relocating to Davis, CA (just to the west of Sacramento) from Marietta GA (just north of Atlanta) and we're planning on making the move a family roadtrip at the end of July. We will be 2 parents, 2 kids (3 and 6!) and grandparents traveling together in one vehicle - the parents and grandparents can all share in the driving duties.

    Currently we're looking at the following route:
    Marietta, GA
    St Louis, MO
    Sioux City, IA
    Badlands National Park - visiting Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Devils Tower, etc in the Black Hills area of South Dakota
    Yellowstone National Park (spending at least a full day in the park)
    Then shortest route to Davis, CA (via Grand Tetons to I-80 across Nevada, Lake Tahoe)

    Is this doable in 6-7 days - with 5 days of driving to allow for a day to explore the Black Hills/Badlands and another for Yellowstone?

    I'll be updating the route during the next few days, but any comments and suggestions will be appreciated.

    Default close but

    Welcome to the RTA forum!

    Your idea is close to working, but you really need on more day. Its a days drive between all the places you've listed, except Yellowstone to Davis is solid 2 days. So that means you need 6 days on the road, which only leaves you one for exploration of the Badland/Black Hills or Yellowstone.
