Hello all. I just discovered this wonderful website and have been looking through others road trips. Perhaps thereís some ideas, suggestions others can make for our upcoming one. Hubby and I will be driving out to Denver then return via North and South Dakota. That strikes off the last two states heís not been in. Looking at about two weeks. So far, this is what weíve outlined,
Day 1 central Virginia, via I-64 to Louisville, KY
Day 2, drive to St. Louis, take in the Arch. Just heard about the Native American mounds just east of there in Illinois so may drive through there. What else?
Day 3, drive to Albilene, KS and visit the Eisenhour Library
Day 4, make it to Denver where we are visiting family
After that the trip home is more tentative. We want to head up to see Mt. Rushmore and Crazy Horse. To fit in the Badlands and Devils Tower, how much more time is needed for those? Any suggestions what to do or see in North Dakota? From there we figured weíd stop to see Mall of America in Minneapolis and head through Wisconsin down to Chicago. Any suggestions of side trips in that section? I havenít been in Chicago for over 40 years so like to see it again. After that there may be a family stop in Indiana then heading on home.
We do a lot of traveling already but most of it has been from VA to New England, or to Indiana, or Florida. This will be our first really long road trip. So, on that note, another question, any good ways to spend the time in the car? I know, music, audio books, other ideas? Good old license plate game? Thoughts?
