First, allow me to express how THRILLED I am to have found this forum! I have already picked up some great tips! :)
I am going to be driving home to Tacoma, WA from Harrisburg, PA with my mother in August and am hoping that you all, in your infinite road-trip wisdom, may have some suggestions as far as routes and things to stop and see along the way.
We have a very flexible schedule. We are leaving Harrisburg on the afternoon of August 17 and have a maximum of 2 1/2 weeks to get to Tacoma. I have done a bit of research as far as people, places and things we might like to see in the larger cities we will be going through, however, it is difficult to find out what might be along the way between stops. I would love your suggestions! Here is a brief outline of where we are planning on stopping thus far:
St. Louis, MO
Kansas City, MO
Wichita, KS (to stay with family friends)
Minneapolis, MN (to stay with another friend)
Moscow, ID (yet another friend!)
Not all of these stops are overnight, but they are places we have found interesting things to see. Again, any suggestions for routes between these places, or interesting destinations between them are VERY welcome!
