  1. Not Much Choice

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Unfortunately, a lot of what is between Iowa (I assumed Des Moines) and Mesa is desert. Arizona is, after al, part of the 'Desert Southwest' and Mesa...

    D'Accord

    I am in full agreement with Dave, Donna and glc on a couple of matters.

    First, if you've never driven an RV before, a 6-8 week RoadTrip meant for enjoyment is not the place to start. Just...

    The Thing About Leaves....

    .. is that they're everywhere in New England (and even in some other parts of the country!). When I used to live in that area, the 'natives' would look at the 'best leaf-peeping sites' lists and know...

    I-84

    It's I-84 east from Scranton rather than I-87 (which doesn't go near Scranton).

    For a Few Miles More...

    I took another look at the route I proposed from DC up to Boston, and if you do decide to skip the NYC area all together, there is a better option than what I first offered. Rather than switching to...

    Probably

    It is far more likely than not that getting out of town before the morning rush hour would help considerably, but "before the morning rush hour" means before 6:00 am in the DC area. As to other parts...

    Why Use I-95 at All?

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    I used to live on the NH/ME coast just north of Boston while most of the rest of my family lived in either Wilmington DE or Washington DC, so I am...
  8. Frostbite Falls?

    Finding the off-the-beaten path is what this site is all about so let's see what we can find for you. As the title of this reply suggests, I'm gong to start at the end of your trip. In Minnesota you...
  9. Always Start with Basics

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    I-40 to North Carolina, and I-10 back from Florida are as straightforward and as basic as it gets. The only navigating you'll have to do is from Raleigh...

    Nevertheless...

    I don't claim to be a fan (or even a viewer) of any portion of the Twilight series of books and films, but the town of Forks certainly revels in whatever connection it has to that world.

    Hidden Gems Everywhere

    My wife and I took our first 'post' COVID (actually, post-vaccination) trip to this area last year, and as with most of our trips, it wasn't the grand 'must see' attractions that we enjoyed or...
  12. Sticky: For Updates....

    Your best bet for the status of Yellowstone National Park over the next few days is the park's own website.

  13. I Wish I Had Better News

    Unfortunately, while many museums in Los Angeles are free on the first Tuesday or Thursday of the month, that does not apply in July and August, which is prime tourist time. There are a few that will...

    Poll: Keep in Mind...

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    First and foremost: neither we nor anyone else can predict the weather more than a couple of days in advance, and even then it can only be in broad...

    Another Country Heard From

    If you really want to stay on Interstates and avoid surface roads through the mountains as much as possible, then a western alternative to the shortest possible route might be in order rather than an...

    A Bridge Too Far?

    While Moab/Arches is a worthwhile destination, it is over 300 miles each way from/to Denver. That would eat up most of your available time, especially if it turns out you can only devote two days to...

    In That Case....

    My apologies for misinterpreting your post. As Michael noted, with 15 days for a one-way drive from Chicago to Seattle you do indeed have time for shorter driving days with more exploring, more on...

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Izzie, this discussion took place in 2007. The original poster has long since made the trip.

  20. Shunpiking

    You're a man after my own heart, especially when the Interstates are also toll roads. I do this whenever i can. My first step is usually to assume that I'm driving in the early 50's when the...
  21. My Bad

    I just re-read your post and see that you're looking for a more northern rather than southern route. I'm not sure why you'd go through Kansas, as the shortest route is through Nebraska on I-80 which...
  22. For Nearly the Same Number of Miles

    The most direct, mostly Interstate route option is fairly simple. Just take I-44 down to Oklahoma City and then I-40 west to Barstow CA and use I-15 south for a short bit to pick up CA-58 west to...

    Must(?) See Places

    I love the Ppacific Northwest, but what I have appreciated most about it is that other than perhaps Olympic National Park (which does have a section along the coast), there are no 'Must See' sights....

    First Thoughts

    To start with, I am curious as to why you chose the places you chose, how much input your nephew had, and what it is you hope to get out of this trip....
