  1. Default Road trip from NJ to Chicago and back!!!

    My husband and I have to be in Chicago for the weekend. We also need a vacation but I can't take off too many days of work. Being that my husband grew up in the windy city it's not a vacation for him. I was thinking to make this into a mini road trip vacation. Can anyone give me any ideas of nice places to stop? I think we can do a 2 1/2 day trip on the way and 2 1/2 days on the way back. We got married less than a year ago so we wanna do a little honeymooning but also want some small adventures. Thanx!!

    Default Exploring New Things Together

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America forums!

    Two and a half days between New Jersey and Chicago is plenty of time to take a relaxed drive and just poke around some low key sites. US-6 across northern Pennsylvania comes to mind as an alternative to the more frenetic Interstates. There's then Cuyahoga Valley National Park in Cleveland, Ohio's Lake Erie Islands and Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore on the southern shore of Lake Michigan. All of those and other venues along the way should make for some nice exploring.
