Hey everyone. I've been trying to find some helpful tips and this site looks like it could help me in that department. Me and my girlfriend are planning on driving from Williamsburg VA to Minneapolis, Minnesota. She's moving there for grad school so we decided to drive there as a last roadtrip of the summer. We drove to Chicago back in June so we know the route to take. The problem this time is we won't be driving the whole distance in one day. We're planning on driving 10 hours on one day and then finish off the trip the next. So if anyone is familiar with this route where would be the best place to stay the night if you go halfway or drive 9 or 10 hours with a few stops?
I've been looking at google maps and it looks like we would either end up at the end of Ohio or the beginning of Indiana. It's pretty difficult to pick a spot before the trip and book a hotel in advance. We just don't want to risk finding some sleazy or sketchy place. We might try to suck it up and make it to Chicago since we're familiar with that area but who knows. Anyways if anyone has some advice or tips that would be awesome. Thanks in advance.
