  1. Default Advice needed: First Coast to coast road trip

    We are planning a road trip from Boston to LA for the first time. Our route is
    Boston - Pittsburgh PA - Chicago - St Louis - Kansas - Mt Rushmore - Colorado, Million Dollar Highway - Utah - Las Vegas - LA.

    We plan to do this over a period of 10 days. Any advice or feedback is appreciated. We are travelling with our 4.5 yr old any tips or suggestions would be great!

    Welcome to the RTA forum!

    I suspect on the surface you are probably trying to do too much. Its a good 6 day drive to go from Boston to LA on a direct route, and you've probably got another couple days worth of zig-zagging north and south. You could probably drive to all of those places, but you really wouldn't have time to see much anything. I'd also guess that such a trip would not be much fun for your son.

    I'm making the assumption that this a one way trip.

    I'd really recommend focusing on things that are either north (Chicago, Rushmore) or south (St. Louis, Colorado).

    When is this trip going to take place?
