  1. Default Solo trip from Orlando to Chicago to Colorado

    I am planning to take a solo road trip in mid June from Orlando to Chicago to Colorado Springs. I would like to spend 3-4 days in Chicago, which leaves me with 10-11 days to make the drive and enjoy attractions. I am not into tourist traps, but would love to stop off to see some nature, camp, and enjoy the small towns. Any suggestions for route, stops, and other ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Also, this will be my first major road trip so any advice regarding comfort and tricks of the trade is welcome!

    Thank you!

    The best way to start would be to get a road map of the US, one which shows parks and forests, and see where you would like to spend some time. When you have some idea, then the experts here can help you refine it. But there is just so much between those three cities, that the list would be almost endless. And everyone would have a different list of their favourite places.

    As for travelling solo. Just be yourself. Don't attract attention to yourself by doing something silly. Behave the way you would at home. And if, at any time, you just don't feel comfortable in a place, move on. Let your instinct be your guide, and you will be fine.
