After looking over a number of ideas and helpful tools on the Road Trip America site, I feel comfortable in running an idea past everyone. My finace and I are gearing up for a short road trip (5-6 days) to regain a bit or sanity from the rat race of life. We'll be leaving from the far south suburbs of Chicago and journeying East to Boston.
Now, we've both made a few road trips in our time and have grown fond of the little things you might find on the way. (Y'know, like the unique places to eat or the attractions that only the locals brag about.) Since I've never been East and she hasn't been in some time, I figured that I would ponder this one to the masses. (We'll also be going to Cambridge, MA for a day to visit as she has some family out there.)
I suppose I have a number of questions... What fun and scenic route can I take? Does anyone know of any little suprises or tidbits along the way? How about Boston/Cambridge in general? Even if something might fall a bit out of the way, I'm not opposed. The whole idea behind this journey is just to relax and get a new perspective on things. I'm looking forward to seeing this portion of America! Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
