  1. Default New Jersey to Yellowstone in August

    Hello all, we are planning a 2 week trip from nj to Yellowstone. We are looking to go through Cleveland and hit rock hall of fame and canton for nfl hall of fame. Would also like to hit my Rushmore. Traveling in mini van with 3 kids. Any advise and suggestions would be appreciated. Farthest we have driven so far was Tenn, and that was 12 hours that we did in 1 day.

    Default Four to five days each way.

    Hello and welcome to RTA !

    You seem to have a good idea of what you want to do and that's the beauty of the road trip, you get to it your way ! My first bit of advice would be to check for availability and book your Yellowstone lodgings asap, if you haven't already that is. Secondly, you really need to allow 4 days to enjoy Yellowstone, [and the Tetons possibly] it's a huge park with lots to see and do over large distances that are slow going. If you do that, it only allows 5 days each way for travel, around 8 hours a day driving with only basic rest stops to eat and stretch out etc, leaving you a little time for a couple of sites like those mentioned, but not much more. It's a minimum 4 days with no sight seeing. Look at doing a loop trip and come back on a different route. Although it would add 2 or 3 hours you could leave Yellowstone through the Tetons and head towards Denver [Estes park for RMNP] and back through St Louis.

    If you have any specific questions, please ask.
