  1. Default Chicago to Houston - Need advice


    This is my first long road trip (in the US that is) and was wondering if I could get some advice. I intend to drive to Houston from Chicago via Memphis, and then come back thru Dallas/St Louis. Here's the Itinerary that I thought of:

    24th Dec: Leave Chicago and reach Memphis
    25th Dec: Memphis
    26th Dec: leave for Houston
    27-28: Houston and around
    29-1: Dallas
    1-2: Drive to Chicago thru St Louis.

    My questions are:

    1. Is driving thru the Midwest in Late Dec advisable (I have a 2008 Honda Pilot)
    2. Is it reasonable to plan Chicago-Memphis in one day?
    3. Can u suggest some places that would interest kids around Houston and Dallas?

    I may have some more questions, but would wait for the gurus to reply first

    Thanks for the help

    Default Possible, but no fudge room


    Chicago to Memphis, Memphis to Houston, and Dallas to St. Louis are all possible to drive in 1 day, but they are all right at the maximum you should attempt. If you hit bad weather, you are going to have to start adding days. There's no reason you can't make the trip but be prepared for delays just in case.
