    Default NYC - Chicago - Louisville - NYC

    Hey everyone/anyone..

    First time poster..

    I'm thinking of doing a solo road trip. I live around NYC and was thinking of doing a 'circle' type trip, going from NYC to Chicago (this isn't definate) and then going down toward Louisville then working my way back to NYC. I have a span of about 9 days to do the trip.
    I am planning to attempt to stay at hostels (basically just to sleep and shower), use free wi-fi hot spots to keep in contact with people/upload photos that I take along the way.

    Think 9 days is not enough? Think that the route is a bad idea?
    Any sugggestions/comments would be greatly appreciated.

    Default Welcome!

    Welcome to the RoadTrip America Forum!

    The mileage for this trip is around 1900 with padding - certainly doable in nine days, using two days to get to Chi-town, one to Louisville, and one back to NYC. Average is 211 miles/day based on this mileage.

    I don't see any problem with this route, either. You have enough time to take the scenic route and enjoy yourself.

    Default Hot Browns and Bourbon

    In Louisville, you definitely want to give a Hot Brown a taste. This is one of the best things I've ever eaten and named after the famous Brown Hotel located downtown.

    There are about six distilleries that make bourbon located within an hour or so from Louisville. Most all offer free tours and several have free tastings.

    Don't forget to check out the Louisville Slugger factory and, of course, Churchill Downs.
