  1. Default Las Vegas to Chicago in 2 days (Via Salt Lake)

    Hello ...My wife and I are driving round trip Chicago to San Diego via Denver and Phoenix. The whole trip seems doable except the lat leg home.

    We would like to drive from Vegas to Chicago in 2 days via Salt Lake. We are not fans of the small town nor Hotels/motels that are not part of a national chain.

    Where is a nice place to stop for the night between Vegas and Chicago via Salt Lake if we would like to do it in 2 days?

    I was thinking about making it to Cheyene, But Wyoming is a new drive for us and Don't to drive to much of it in the dark.

    Any help would be appreciated,,,thanks

    Default Not Necessary

    The only way you can cover the 1,820 miles between Las Vegas and Chicago (via Salt Lake City) in two days is to forego stopping anywhere along the way, so there is no point in trying to determine a good stopping point halfway between them. On the other hand, if you give this trip the minimum of three 600 mile days that it requires, then you'd be looking at stopping in or near Rock Springs, WY and Grand Island, NE. Both of those towns have franchises from some of the standard motel chains


  3. Default Good point. No sense in pushing it....

    Yeah... Good point. we actually did it last year through Denver in 2 days no problem and didn't know if it was possible through Salt Lake....

    But we'll take your advice and break it up into 3 days. Makes more sense.
