Best stops LV to east coast?
I'm planning an 7-8 week road trip from Las Vegas to the east coast. Hoping to hit Jackon Hole, Mt. Rushmore, the Chicago area, Kansas City, Boston & Nantucket during our trip, as well as about 9 nights on Long Island, NY. Does this sound like enough time? We'll probably travel with our 17-ft. travel trailer.
We'll be traveling with a 6 year old child & a 10 year old dog (she loves to travel, so she shouldn't have any problems). Does anyone have any other suggestions on "must-see's" during our trip?
Bryce Canyon, UT
Torrington, WY (Nice typical western town)
Scottsbluff National Monument, Scottsbluff NE
Chimney Rock Nat'l Mon, near Bridgeport NE
Western Heritage Trails Museum (free and interesting), Council Bluffs IA
Gateway Arch, St.Louis MO
Freedom Trail, Boston MA
Charlestown (USS Constitution, Bunker Hill Monument), Boston MA
Cape Cod (Provincetown, Herring Cove Beach), MA
Newport, RI (Marble House, etc.)
White Mountains NH (Mount Washington, Lafayette)
Mt. Kathadin (if you like mountain hiking) ME
Bar Harbor/Acadia Park ME
Burlington VT (typically New England, go to Ben & Jerry's (yummy ice cream) buy some Green Mountain Coffee)
Eastern Townships villages Qc (just across the Vermont border (Knowlton, North Hatley, etc.))
Quebec City Qc (3 hours north of the border)
Have a nice trip!
If you stop to see the Missouri or Mississippi rivers as you cross them, keep the pooch on a short leash. If there happens to be anything moldering along the banks of the river, your dog, if free to do so, WILL find it and roll in it thoroughly. Do not ask me how I know this. Just keep it in mind and don't say you weren't warned! :) Bob
