Hello everyone I have loved reading all the trip ideas over the years and decided this may be the fastest way to plan a last minute trip this summer......because it is obvious where the experts are!
We have decided to hit the road and go from salt lake to just outside the Baltimore area.....to visit grandparents in PA then stay about a week there and then head home going through OKC to visit the other grandparents..then home. We are traveling with our 11 and 13 year old. the kids love children's museums and sites, NPs, etc my son really wants to see mount Rushmore. I am at a loss of even where to stay, cabins in parks are fine, don't really want to tent camp in the heat. Trying to save over hotels. we like scenic roads or interstates, are interested in visiting cool local festivals and such if they coincide with our dates. looking at leaving around July 21 and returning around aug 18 or so. We are flexible, so that helps. Would like to stay a week on the east coast and a week in OKC....so how to do this and what are the do not miss items? haven't found decent website yet for planning, ideas for that appreciated too!
Can't wait to hear evryones ideas! Thanks!
