    Default Mid Sept - Indiana, Illinois, Iowa

    We're travelling across the north of the States in September and will be in Ohio in mid september. Our next main point of interest is to get to the Badlands NP and Mount Rushmore etc but in between obviously we have to cover Indiana, Illinois and Iowa, but reading through our many guide books there doesnt appear to be a great deal to stop for or look at. Has anybody got any ideas for sights along this section? We're up for anything except commercialism and shopping!!!

    Default Here and There

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    There are plenty of points of interest in the states you'll be driving through, both along the highways and scattered throughout the state. You just have to look and not have a preconceived notion of what's out there. Another great source of ideas are the individual state's tourism department websites.

    The Great Midwest, Illinois to be precise

    Default Lincoln Highway

    Have you considered driving along the Lincoln Highway, the nation's oldest transcontinental road? It goes through all three states.

    mm, thanks for that, that looks feasible, we'll be in Mansfield Ohio and our next stop is going to be in Madison Wisconsin so we can just follow route 30 i guess as far as we can, before heading north to Madison.

    US-30 from Mansfield west is a pretty fast road till you get to the Chicago area. It's very congested from Merrilville IN west through the south Chicago suburbs. You may want to get back on the Interstates around there.
