Every year, my boyfriend and I take about 10 days for a road trip. I am struggling to decide where to go this year. We both LOVE to hike and we aren't opposed to camping. We were originally considering heading to Montana and doing Glacier Nat'l Park and Yellowstone, with stops in ND, WY and SD along the loop, but it seems like it will be just too much driving for the time we have. I don't want to repeat previous trips so here is where we've gone in previous years:
2010 - South Dakota, stopped in Sioux Falls, few nights in Deadwood, did Spearfish Canyon, the Badlands, Custer State Park.
2011 - Nashville, The Smokies, and the KY Bourbon Trail.
We also make frequent trips to the UP and lower Michigan, so neither of those would be new for us. We also have several weekend trips planned for this year: Mackinac Island in May, the Smokies (again) in June, a Wisconsin camping trip in July, and a camping trip to the Mississippi Palisades in Illinois in the fall.
I guess you could say I need fun things planned in order to get me through my work weeks! ... gives me something to look forward to in the human rat race :P
Any ideas on new destinations?
Thanks for all of your help!
