I will be road tripping from Vancouver to Toronto in early May this year with a few friends.
I would like to stop off near Banff for a few nights. Following Banff, we will probably duck down into the states and I think I'd possibly like to see Mount Rushmore and Chicago (not essential) but other than that, the trip is fairly open and I am looking for ideas of good places to stop along the way.
Our timeframe starting in Vancouver is around 1.5 - 2 weeks and the age of the travellers is early to mid 20's, so we will probably be looking for a mix of some nice national parks, college towns and larger cities.
Does anybody have any suggestions of a good route to take and stops to make along the way? By the way I'm from Australia, so apologies if I'm a bit clueless.
