  1. Default Chicago RV Rental - Long Weekend Rental Ideas

    Looking to rent an RV for the first time...a long 3-4 day weekend with my two sons, 14 and 8. We're in the western suburbs of Chicago. Looking for fun ideas. Maybe Mount Rushmore and back? Any fun things to see enroute? Thinking August/September. Thanks!

    From Chicago, Mt. Rushmore is about 900 miles . . . ONE WAY . . . round trip, that's about 30 hours in the car. Too much for one 3-4 day weekend.

    How about a campground on the Great Lakes or Cedar Point?

    Default turning back

    Welcome to the RTA forum!

    I agree that with 3-4 days, Western South Dakota would be too far. You've be driving out there just to turn around and come back home.

    There are a lot of things that are within reach though. Here is one of several previous threads that have covered this basic topic. With the time you have, you're really going to need to stay within about 500 miles of Chicago, but you really shouldn't have trouble finding something that would fit that goal.
