  1. Default Michigan to the Badlands

    I am in mid-Michigan. I want to take my 13 yr old son on a brief Midwest area roadtrip during his spring break. Same time period as above. Do you have any suggestions? How far would the bad lands be from Lansing, MI?

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Thanks for looking at old threads before posting, but since every trip is unique, we find it's a lot easier to let each member create a thread for their own trip. That's why I've moved your thread here.

    As far as your question, It's about 1,000 miles from Lansing to the Badlands which you could do in 2 full days on the road. LaCrosse, WI - on the Mississippi River - would be roughly the halfway point.

    The badlands are fantastic, but if you're going all that way, then I'd also try to fit in the Black Hills as well - seeing places like Mount Rushmore, Custer State Park, and Jewel or Wind Caves.

    Default A short respite from I-90

    Along that route, there is a short detour to give you a respite from the interstates. At La Crosse, cross the Mississippi to La Crescent and take the Historic Bluff Country National Scenic Byway - route 16 - to Dexter.
