    Default All those suggestions still stand.

    Alan, have you checked back to your last thread some years ago? All the suggestions there still stand, for the same journey in the same time frame.

    I would agree that the previous thread has a lot of information that would still apply.

    I will also note that you will be arriving in Yellowstone just as the park is starting to open up for the year, and several roads will still be closed. Based on the current schedule, everything south of Old Faithful to the Lake will still be closed, as will things from the Lamar Valley to Canyon. However, even that it kind of a best case - opening dates could be pushed back, and it's entirely possible that a storm while you are there will close some roads.

    Yes we are also looking and using the last thread from years back, but at that time it was more about what and where, now we have a more fixed trip with a ET of time in every city, and we have also booked in Yelowstone and Orlando and also the flights.
    So now its about making everyday like a small road trip, what to see here, where to stop and eat and so on.
    Im also trying to find local markets, fun local sport and all the stuff that you dont see.

    Need to say that we are trying not to drive on Interstate Highway and if we are its only to get somewhere fast or becaus the weather is bad.

    Default City's can start to look alike.

    Your trip leans quite heavily towards City life which is fine if that's what you want to do, but there are other options. As an example, have you considered staying in Estes Park and looking around the Bear lake area of Rocky mountain NP rather than Denver ?

    We are open to anything, it is just to have a way point and it is alot easyer to have a city then just a mark om the map.
    we are not really city people but more nature and are really looking forward to the drive around yellowstone and the north states.
    If it was possible we would take 10-15-20 weeks to take it slow but we only have 6 weeks this time.
    If there is anything to change on the trip no problem, an when we have listet cityes like this:
    Tuesday 13 Homestead and more everglades and then drive to Fort Meyers.
    Friday 14 Fort Meyers to Tampa
    Saturday 15 Tampa to Orlando.
    Its not that we have to stay in Homestad or Fort Meyers it is more that we have a plan on what way we are going and how long we want to drive one day but again nothing is fixed, the only thing is the week in Orlando we have booked and the 3 days in Yellowstone that we also have booked, the rest is just what we would like to see but nothing is fixed.
