    Default From NY (Manhattan) to Chicago

    Hi,
    Me and my son (22 years old) are panning a 4 days trip by car from NY to Chicago early October.
    We plan to leave Manhattan Thursday afternoon and arrive to Chicago Sunday night.
    We will apprecate interesting suggestions.
    Currently we received few recommendations about Shenandoah National Park (including the Skyline Drive) and New River Gorge.
    We want to make sure that we have reasonable blend of driving and sight seeing.
    Any recomendations will be appreciated.
    Thank you

    Default As Long as You're Going That Way

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Clearly, you're not in any rush and you can afford to wander of the straight and narrow. If Shenandoah, the Blue Ridge and the New River are on your To Do list, then here are some other routes and attraction you should consider. Taking I-78 out of New York to I-81 south will let you avoid the Philadelphia, Baltimore, and Washington traffic, as well as put you in position to visit Hershey and Gettysburg on your way to Shenandoah. You can also consider Antietem and/or Harpers Ferry if you're Civil War buffs. Then after New River, you can consider taking US-52 down along the Ohio River to Cincinnati, before stopping in to visit the Air Force Museum in Dayton and/or the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to get your boy's toys fix.

    Default From NY to Chicago

    Hi,
    Me and my 22 years old son are planning to take a car in NYC on the coming Thursday and to drive all the way to Chicago. We have to be in Chicago Monday morning.
    We are looking for ideas to plan our trip.
    One idea we got is to go through Pennsylvania, down to Virginia (Shenandoah and New River Gorge), up to Indiana and Chicago.
    We will appreciate other shorter / interesting ideas for routs and places to visit.
    Thank you!
    Avi
