  1. Default Need Advice - Detroit to Portland and back

    Hi Everyone - I am planning a two week road trip this July from Detroit to Portland (stay there a couple of days visiting family) and then back to Detroit. It will be my husband and I and our two girls, ages 9 and 10.

    I am looking for attraction ideas -- off the top of my head, Mt. Rushmore, Yellowstone, ...

    Any and all help is sincerely appreciated!

    Hello and welcome to the R.T.A. forums.

    With it being a round trip in the region of 4700 miles, it will require something like 10 x 8 hour days or 8 x 10 hour days [that I doubt the kids would enjoy so much] on the road, with just short stops for food, gas and Bio breaks along the way.

    With a couple of days in Portland it doesn't leave you with a whole lot of free time after a visit to Yellowstone. However this link has great info on interesting stops just off Interstate.

    Have a look at the link and search the forums for ideas, and if you would like to put up an outline plans of your route and where you would like to stop we can help you piece it together.
