  1. Default Kansas City to Yellowstone - 2 weeks

    Hi. I'm new to this. My boyfriend and I are going on a 2 week roadtrip. we're leaving from Kansas City and going to yellowstone but we don't really know what to do. Some other places we'd like to see would be Glacier National Park, Estes Park, Grand Canyon, and Moab Utah. Is this possible in 2 weeks? Also, what can we do in each area? We'd probably like to hike and do some active things while we're gone. Thanks!

    Default Not Quite Within Reach

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    When I first read your wish list, I thought that there was no way that you could visit all those venues and spend any quality time at them. On further reflection, it might just be within the realm of possibility as long as you drop the farthest of them and realize that, even so, there will be days where your major activity is just driving and that you may not be seeing each of them at their best due to bad weather during your visit. With those caveats, a rough outline of such a trip might look like:

    Days 1 and 2) Moderately hard driving days to get to the Grand Canyon area
    Day 3) Grand Canyon
    Day 4) Drive up through Monument Valley to Moab, with a possible side trip to Mesa Verde
    Day 5) Arches National Park
    Day 6) Drive north: Dinosaur National Monument, Flaming Gorge National Recreation Area
    Day 7) Drive north to Grand Teton National Park
    Days 8-10) Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National parks (not enough time, but Oh, well.)
    Day 11) Drive Southeast across Wyoming
    Day 12 and 13) Arrive at Rocky Mountain National Park and explore the area
    Day 14) A long haul home to Kansas City

    As you can see, that's a packed itinerary. Glacier proved just too much to include. Now you may be able to add a day or two, but if you can, I'd spend them taking the time to see those destinations a bit more thoroughly rather than adding more places (and more driving).
