  1. Default Road trip across America from Chicago to Pacific Northwest, down coast, return south

    We would like to take a one month road trip from Chicago visiting the national parks (Mt. Rushmore, Yellowstone, Yosemite and others) and then drive through Vancouver, BC, Seattle, Portland, California and then return southern route (maybe Route 66). Any helpful hints? Can this be done in a one month time frame?

    Default It's doable.

    The trip would be best done In September as winter can come early to places like Yellowstone and Yosemite. It would make more sense to go from Yellowstone to Vancouver and then through Seattle Portland etc to California and Yosemite. On the return you could visit the Grand canyon and perhaps some of Utah's amazing National parks and perhaps Colorado if you haven't set your minds on route 66. The trip is doable in a month but it could be busier than you may think, with a daily average of around 200 miles or more every day (no matter how you divide them). That doesn't sound so bad but if you spend a few days in Yellowstone, a couple here a couple there, the driving days become longer.
