On July 27th I will be leaving California and heading to Ohio for graduate school. Since I have never been to many of places in between the two coasts, I thought this would be a great opportunity to see some new things.
I have to be in Cincinnati by August 9th. So I think I have plenty of time to hit some main sites. I'm a 24 y/o male who has no problem putting some serious time behind the wheel (I've gone from SF to Vancouver in one shot... twice).
I'm about half way through plotting out a route which I have made a google map of...
Road Trip across America
The points in red are the places I really want to go to. The ones in blue seem interesting enough top stop at. I've gotten as far South Dakota and I could use some help. From here I want to venture through Chicago to see a friend and then make my way to Cincinnati. Any ideas the most interesting route? Have I missed any 'must see' places along the way?
Hopefully you can tell I'm not really interesting in big cities so much as national parks and quirky things. Any suggestions would be great!
