  1. Default Road Trip From SF to NY

    Hello. I am so glad I found this site! I am planning a road trip with 2 pals. We're going from San Francisco to New York. We don't have a super strict schedule, though we are thinking it will be about 14 days. We are planning a mixture of camping and staying in hotels/cabins.
    Here is what we have so far:
    day 1: Yosemite National Park
    day 2: Las Vegas
    day 3 + 4 (?): Grand Canyon (North Rim) - we might stay another night camping in Kaiab Lodge

    From here, we are up in the air with what too see next .... Our next planned destination is Nebraska (we are zig-zagging, but we have our reasons) .... what do you recommend we see in-between? We are thinking either Bryce Canyon or Mesa Verde .... other options are: Dinosaur National Monument (is this worth seeing? can you access the UT side?), Arches National Park, the Canyonlands ... we could probably take another 2 or 3 days in the region - and we would rather take some time to see things and do a little hiking, then just driving through all of them.

    From Nebraska, we will probably take 80 all the way through .... any suggestions for Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio? any good National Parks or Oddities along our route? we would be willing to veer from 80 for something worth it.
    Any suggestions are welcome!

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Between Las Vegas and Nebraska, by far (I think) your best bet is to basically just follow I-15 and I-70. Within shouting distance of that route are Zion, Bryce Canyon and Arches National Parks, Colorado National Monument, Loveland Pass, Rocky Mountain National Park and the old Oregon Trail, not to mention that the drive itself is spectacular.
