    Default Virginia to Iowa/SD Photographic tour First Half of June

    My wife, newly adopted pre-teen daughter and myself will be going from central Virginia to North West Iowa to visit my parents this summer, first weeks of June. We do plan on trying to go out to Rapid City, SD and seeing Mt Rushmore as well.

    We want the road trip experience. I'm quite the photographer, not sure anyone else is okay with that in the group, so I'll likely bring a couple small film cameras and a ton of film with me. Looking for great places to stop on the way. Great places to take pictures as well!

    I know we'll drive out I64 to I70 to I26, through Kansas City and Omaha with a stop at the Omaha Zoo. My wife loves theatre, so any good places like that would be great. My daughter is pretty in different, but loves Pink.

    Default Ah, Film...

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    ...I remember it fondly. There is certainly no shortage of scenic venues between the East Coast and the Badlands of the northern High Plains. Just a few of the stops you could make that would offer you something to put in front of your lens as well as great short refreshing hikes for your wife and daughter include the New River Gorge in West Virginia, Carter Caves in Kentucky, and the Falls of the Ohio in Clarksville IN. As you work your way north along the Missouri River from Kansas City, you can take the Loess Hills Scenic Byway as well as stop at the national Wildlife Refuges and Lewis and Clark sites along the way.

    One other suggestion - in St. Louis, the zoo is free.

    While in Rapid City make sure to visit Downtowns Newest addition- Main STreet Square, it has an interactive fountain that sprays with the beat of the music, awesome shops and dining. Also check out: for more information on what to do while you are in the area.
