    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Can you tell us a little about your trip? How much time do you have, who is going on the trip, what are your interest, is this a round trip or one way? At 1,600 miles, you could make this trip in as little as 3 days, or you could spend weeks exploring the many things in between.

    The more you can tell us, the more other people can narrow down the millions of potential stops for dining, lodging, and sites to see. I'd also encourage you to check out RTA's Map Center, which will show you numerous unique places to stop, all personally recommended by RTA's contributors.

    Yes it will be my husband, our 40 year old daughter that is a widow and her 7 year old son. She is going to the Young living convention and we decided to go and drive. My husband also wants to go to Mt Rushmore for sure either on the way or way home. We want to site see all the beautiful things along the way. We have to be in salt Lake on the 16 th will site see there with our grandson while she is attending the Young Living stuff. We have already got a room in downtown Salt Lake until the 20th. Then we will be heading back. Other than that we don't have anything set up. Welcome any and all help.
    Thank you already for all your help this far. This site is amazing

    Can you please tell us how many days you have for the drive, each way? When on the 16th do you have to be there, and when on the 20th will you be leaving?

    You said you'll be in SLC from "the 16th" to "the 20th," however you didn't tell us when you're planning to leaving home, when you need to be back, or even which month you're talking about!

    Detouring to Mount Rushmore will add at least 200 miles to the drive - which isn't a big deal at all, if you've got the time - but it is something to consider as it isn't on a direct route.

    So, 5 or 6 days to get there, and 7 days to get back? That should be plenty of time to take different routes out and back and visit some places.
