This forum is a gem! I will enjoy reading through it over the next few days.
Anyway, me and my girlfriend have a road trip semi planned. We have booked flights and a car etc and have a good idea of where we would like to go. I would like your expert advice on the trip and any tips or anything at all you can offer, please post!
We land in Chicago on 10/12/08 (Dec 10, 08) at about 1pm. We hope to see the Sears Tower and Grant Park on that day, stop in the hotel then set off in the morning>
Indianapolis - See the Indy 500 track>
Nashville - Any recommendations for things to see here appreaciated>
JD distillery - Speaks for itself!>
Memphis - HAVE to go to Graceland and spend the night there, try to go into Memphis too to see the Sun Studios etc>
Oklahoma City - 45th Infantry Division Museum, Country & Western heritage>
Dodge City - Wax Museums>
Mount Rushmore - Obvious >
Denver - Would like to do a day of snowboarding here in the Rockies and the Six Flags Gardens>
We hope to be in Las Vegas by the 24th and spend two nights there >
Then continuing to LA and doing the coast there. Some surf spots etc.
We leave from LAX on the 6th/01/2009 (Jan 6, 09) so a total of 28 days in USA. Have we given ourselves enough time to do everything and see plenty?
I could use some help in finding some inportant things to see that I have no doubt missed!
Thanks for looking in.
