My girlfriend and I are planning to start our roadtrip on August 6th (that in 4 days!) . A few things that we need help on
- We will largely take the northern route (IL,IA,NE,UT,NV) rather than the southern one , just to avoid the heat in the NM,AZ and the southern states.
Our current plan is
Aug 6 Pittsburgh (4 hrs) Chicago (7 hours)
Aug 7 Des Moines ( 5 hrs) lincoln , nebraska ( 3 hours)
Aug 8 Denver ( 6 hrs) - and a stop in Colorado Springs
Aug 9 salt lake city ut
Aug 10 Reno
Aug 11 San Francisco
What do you think?
- I'd love recommendations on family-owned restaurants,unique stopovers,things not to miss (we dont mind taking detours or stretching our trip if its worth it)
- Is a detour through Wisconsin and South Dakota (Mt. Rushmore ) worth it?
- We haven't booked a single motel - coz we are trying to keep the trip as flexible as possible (is this a good idea?)
Please help us out!
