We survived a 10+ hr drive to Bar Harbor, ME, last summer. We decided to go for a big one this year with our 6 year old from NY to Yellowstone.
Below is our current itinerary. This is our first time covering so many miles so our goal is trying to minimize driving to around 12 hrs between destinations with NY <-> Chicago as the exceptions. I would like any seasoned roadtrippers for potential stops between destinations and tips that will help prevent us killing each other :).
NY -> Chicago -> Minneapolis -> Bismark, SD -> Billings, MT -> YellowStone -> Grand Teton -> Rapid City / Mt. Rushmore -> Sioux Fall -> Chicago -> NY.
Thanks in advance!
