  1. Default Chicago to Los Angeles in Mid August

    Hi everyone,

    My brother and I are planning to drive from Chicago to Los Angeles between August 10th to August 19th to drop my brother and his car off at USC. We plan on driving the I-80 route, but are willing to stray a little bit for adventure's sake. We both enjoy camping and outdoor activities, as well as sightseeing. I was looking for some suggestions as to where to stop for some fun camping, good activities, etc. We plan on taking all 9 days and need some good ideas for things to do between driving. We'd like to do some whitewater rafting, hiking, maybe even some canyoneering. I figure you folks might have figured out the best stuff to hit. Thanks for all your help!

    Default Welcome!

    Welcome to the RoadTrip America Forum!

    Do you mean the I-80, I-76, I-70, I-15 route? If so, this will bring you close to some awesome places to get out and take a hike, including Bryce Canyon and Zion National Parks. You could also diverge into Canyonlands in Utah.

    The trip on the way out puts you at roughly the following pace:
    Day 1: Omaha
    Day 2: Denver
    Day 3: Cedar City
    Day 4: Los Angeles

    Yes, that's the route we're taking. We were thinking of focusing our efforts on the two parks near Moab, with only minor stops between there. We plan on spending 3 days in the Moab area, with one of them spent whitewater rafting. Any thoughts on good hikes or whitewater trips?
