    I would agree with Buck that all of these can be done within 3 weeks, however, I will also say it still looks to me like you are underestimating the distances in the American West and need to spend a...

    While there are good beaches on Lake Michigan, and not just Indiana Dunes, there are some decent ones in Chicago as well, you won't usually find many people on them in late September. By that point...

    October really is just too late in the year to expect beach weather anywhere near Washington DC. You probably need to be looking at being at least as far as South Carolina to have a good chance at...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Let me start by saying that if your expectations are to drive 15-20 hours at a time, then you absolutely have a major problem with long drives. Doing that in a single...

    You've got a solid outline, and I completely agree with Dave that detouring to Vegas and LA doesn't really make any sense on your timeline.

    I will offer a couple small suggestions.

    Wait, I'm really confused, you went from talking about not having a time limit, to talking about doing this in just 10 days. Is that round trip? If so, you need to go back to the drawing board.

    I think that's a lot of driving with very little time to see anything expect what you're driving past at 70mph. While you could physically do all of this, I see driving day after driving day.

  8. Sticky: One more to add

    I would also throw in the recommendation of visiting the Rock Island Armory, which was a major POW camp, and as such is home to a significant Confederate Cemetery.

    It would fit in well between...

    The first week of september probably isn't going to be as quiet as you might expect. The end of the summer travel season ends with our Labor Day holiday on the first Monday of September. Being that...

    I think finding an interesting downtown hotel around an hour from Chicago might be difficult. In that hour-radius circle, you're generally looking at suburb type towns, where chain hotels along the...

    If you've abandoned the RV idea, I think you might have the one situation where I would consider just renting a car in NYC.

    You will have to deal with traffic and tolls as well as parking,...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I think what you've got laid out should make for a very nice trip, and 3 weeks seems like a very nice amount of time for it.

    I will say that I would not recommend...

    That advice is perhaps one of the biggest and most dangerous myths of winter travel.

    Case in point, just yesterday, a snowstorm basically shut down I-5 and I-15 in southern california. If you had...

    I would agree with nFoCB, while there is some overlap of thing that you could probably use in both, doing these as two separate threads might be easier to keep things organized.
