I'm an irish student in Chicago for the summer planning a roadtrip for the end of september, early october. We're planning to drive from Chicago to LA in 14 days, and want to take in as much as we can along the way.
We have a few ideas of the general path we want to take but just want some advice on what to see along the way, and how long we should spend in certain places, and travel times between places.
We're thinking first destination from chicago would be South Dakota to see 'Badlands National Park' and Mount Rushmore, then south to Denver through Colorado, into Arizona to see Grand Canyon. Then onto Vegas. From Vegas we want to go north to San Francisco and do the coastal drive south to Los Angeles.
Is this too much to take on in 2 weeks?? Any alternate suggestions are welcomed. But I would like to know any highlights to be seen along the way.
Thankyou for your time
