Any thoughts and recommendations would be appreciated:
1. Chicago - Seattle (2565 miles)
Mount Rushmore/Grand Rapids, SD
Billings (hopefully to catch a Mustangs game)
Vancouver and Victoria
2. NYC - Atlanta (1300 miles)
Washington DC & Annapolis (Nats game)
Durham/Chapel Hill (hoping to catch a Mudcats game)
Either Charlotte or the Outer Banks, NC
Atlanta (Braves game)
Obviously the first trip is almost twice as much driving, so that's a major consideration. I guess we just don't know much about a lot of those places, so anyone that has any recommendations would be much appreciated.
I've done both, the 1st one is epic, the second one nice.
It's nature vs the city, possibly bad food part of the epic, GREAT food in the second one.
