New York, New York

What are some must see stops between New York and San Francisco?

We (Girlfriend, Dog, and I) are hitting the road for a 2 week road trip across the country from NYC -> SF at the End of May. We are planning to stay on the 80 and 90 so a north sort of route. Only plans right now are to stop in Badlands/Mt Rushmore and Yellowstone, Tetons etc.

We are staying in Motels and some camping too.

Let us know if you have any suggestions for the midwest or other stops in between NYC and SF.

    To say that is a difficult question to answer is an understatement. There is so much to see. I'll just throw a few things out.

    Consider Cleveland- The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is actually interesting , as is The Cleveland Museum of Art and yes you could spend a few days there but you aren't going to.

    Next maybe Omaha, a more interesting city than you might imagine.

    If your'e on to the Badlands National Park go through the Nebraska panhandle and maybe check out Toadstool Geologic Park, Scottsbluff and Chimney Rock State Park- move fast!

    Hit the Black Hills , maybe go to Deadwood. You are right to prioritize Yellowstone National Park.

    Good luck!

      By Scottsbluff I meant the monument - the Bluff- not the town- although did have good Mexican food there. · (0 likelikes)

    I will second Omaha. Stay in the Old Market, stroll along the cobblestone streets, bar hop and decide where to eat. Suggestions: M's Pub, Twisted Fork Grill & Bar, Stokes Grill & Bar Wood Fired Foods and one of my favorite Indian restaurants, Indian Oven. If going this route (I-80), you can take a detour to the Sandhills. You could turn off I-80 there and head north to the Badlands.

    You could always stop off in southern Utah for a lot of great camping. There is Goblin Valley State Park, Moab and Coyote Gulch. Moab has an amazing brewery by the same name -- Moab Brewery -- and Coyote Gulch offers a great breakfast in the town just outside.

      Moab is amazing! I did the drive from Chicago to LA, and stopped in Moab, did Arches National Park, and ate breakfast at the JailHouse Cafe. SO GOOD! · (0 likelikes)

    One thing I highly recommend is the breakfast (brunch) at Jenny Lake Lodge in Grand Teton National Park. It is expensive at $24/person but you can order anything and everything on the menu. The buffalo hash is wonderful. It is basically buffalo tenderloin with potatoes, onions and peppers. Everything is great at my favorite park in the world. You can read what I wrote about Chicago in my other post.


    A different alternative to your present plans would be, once you get to Chicago, get on Route 66 and follow it to California via a southern route. It's not easy but there are books and maps and online resources. Even though, when my wife and I followed it backwards from Oklahoma, we sometimes got lost but it was a lot of fun.

    I would stop at an In-N-Out Burger while you are driving through Utah, Nevada, and/or California. They have some really great burgers!

    If you happen to go through Cleveland stop at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum! Then if you hit Canton you have the Pro Football Hall of Fame!
