Ok, so I am planning a road trip with my family come this June or July. I wanted to see if anyone had any advice on the route I have chosen so far and just advice in general.
I have two weeks worth of vacation so the MAX trip time is 14 days, although I would like to trim it down to about 11 or so if possible. Right now we only have several things that are things we definitely want to see.
- Yellowstone National Park
- Redwood National Park (Ave. of the Giants)
- McCall,ID (My sister in law lives here so we are going to spend a full day in McCall.)
Anything else is fair game. We are traveling in a rental minivan with a 6 year old and 4 year old. This pretty much excludes camping or other activities that would prohibit taking young children (no casinos etc.)
I basically don't know how many hours to do per day and what towns to find decent but lower price accommodations. The towns I have picked on the map are just towns that seemed to be close to some of our destinations and convenient to stop at based on hours per day of driving. We have taken several trips from Iowa City to Baltimore (15 hours) and it seems I start to get tired of driving around 8-10 hours in. Any suggestions?
I have included a google map rough draft so far.. I am kind of stuck on what path to take on the way back...
Great forum btw!
