Hello. This is my first time here and have found lots of useful information so far but needing more. The plan is a 7 to 10 day trip from Wichita, KS to NYC and back this summer with my my husband, 10 year old son, father-in-law and my self. We are looking for things to do along the way there as well as on the way home.
We would like to get there in only 2 days, stay in NYC for 2-3 days and then return home via Cedar Point theme park and a stop in Chicago (3-4 days). We are into history, theme parks, ghost towns, quarky and unusual stuff, and nautre. What are some ideas to do and see in Chicago? Is there a better time than others to make the trip? i.e. early June as apposed to late July, etc. What are other things to do or see along the way? Any any other info would be great too.
Thanks in advance!
