Planning a trip from San Diego CA to Chicago Il. Please any feedback is greatly appreciated.
I'll try to keep this as short as possible. So I'm heading east, but first I'm stopping in Phoenix Az for a night with family before I move to Chicago. After there I'll head north to Grand Canyon, then to Hoover dam, and finally spending the night in Vegas. My next trip north will be the longest without stopping for the views, I'll make my destination moon crater national park, where I'll spend the night in Arco Id. I'll leave the next morning for yellow stone national park and Mount Rushmore before staying for the night in rapid city SD. This is where it gets tricky, there are only a couple of notable places to stop at in between here and Chicago. (13 hours of driving I can make in a day) I'd much rather split it up between 2 days and stop maybe in Minneapolis Mn. And then to Chicago the next day, or I can head south to Omaha Ne, and head out the next day and maybe stop in cedar Rapids Ia. Before heading over to Chicago. I know this is a lot to take in, but please if I've left anything out or you would do something different because of experience, I'd love to hear them. I'll only stay in national parks or places like that for a couple hours so I'm not losing time on the trip, but also taking in as much of the sites as I can. I have about 5-6 days for this trip. Maybe 7 if my movers are out on time. Thanks for your input and your time.
