  1. Besides the Strip

    Just because you happen to be in Vegas, there's no need to stay in Vegas. Just outside town are a few scenic natural sites, even if they aren't national parks, such as Red Rock Canyon National...
  2. Don't Overlook the Obvious

    In Colorado, just southeast of Grand Junction, there's the Black Canyon of the Gunnison. Then between Grand Junction and Las Vegas, you're going to be driving within very easy side-trip distances of...
  3. Visalia to Kingman

    This is another route where knowledge of the road types should alleviate some stress. At 415 miles and with a two vehicle caravan that includes a truck, straight to the point seems the way to go....

    Personally...

    As with everything here, it's up to you - That's the point of a roadTrip rather than a tour or cruise where somebody else determines your itinerary. All anyone here can do is tell you what they would...
  5. 'Best' is a State of Mind

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    As you read around other people's posts and our responses, you'll see over and over again that in our opinion there is simply no single 'best' route for...

    Worth the Twenty Bucks or So

    If you are going to be spending a lot of time on non-Interstate roads (not necessarily 'back' roads, but even some older US and state highways) you'll need a road atlas that shows where low clearance...

    Just a Short Note on the Kancamagus

    Great Road! First, it's pronounced Kan-ka-MANG-us (with an 'n'). If you can, drive it from west to east, from Lincoln to Conway. It's a long steady climb from the east side to the top of the pass,...

    Well, No. So...

    Be There Soon Myself

    As it happens, my niece is getting married next month outside Wilmington DE. While I'm back east for that, I'll be going down to northern Virginia (DC area) and back. Most of what's in that area are...

    On the Other Hand...

    As a former resident of the East Coast (DE, MD, NH, ME) I wouldn't call any of your targets so far a "National Park of the East". I'd also have to ask if you're interested in other parts of the...

    Although Canada has announced that it will open its border with the US to fully-vaccinated travelers on August 9th, the United States yesterday (July 21st) announced that it will NOT open the border...

    Hope for the Best; Plan for the Worst

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    I don't quite share your pessimism regarding the opening of the US-/Canada border. As cases and deaths continue to decline, even in the face of the...

    Also in Dayton

    If Dayton ends up on your itinerary, Wright-Patterson would certainly be high on any list of 'air museums'. But if you do, the Wright Brothers National Museum should be on that same list. They have...

    Little Help, Please?

    "Colorado/California/Las Vegas" covers an awful lot of territory, and other than Las Vegas are large areas rather than precise spots. So at this point I...
  22. Time is What We Measure with a Clock

    If time is not an issue, then I'd probably be thinking in terms of two to three weeks. Just driving more or less directly up to Glacier and back to SLC will use up four days, but you'll want to make...
