Hi - we are planning a 16 day road trip to explore some of the American History with our two grade school children - 12 and 13... we are from the UK and would love some suggestions and guidance... we are driving to and from IL... our kids are used to road trips as we've done them out West on a couple of occasions...
You'll see that I don't have DC or Boston on the itinerary as we'll tackle those on separate trips...
We would LOVE any suggestions that you have re MUST SEE'S... roads/routes we absolutely should take as we go on our adventures...and any DON"T BOTHER... I know our list is long, and we may need to tweak it down a little so we have time to sleep... I'm after great guidance on the things we shouldn't cut, and those that are good, but less impactful.
