My wife and I took a road-trip two years ago from Memphis through Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, to LA and up the coast to SF and Napa Valley. We had such a great time- especially eating all the BBQ- that we're thinking about taking another major road trip. Problem is, we can't decide which trip to do. We have 14 days to make either trip. Any thoughts and recommendations would be appreciated:


1. Chicago - Seattle (2565 miles)

The Stops

Mount Rushmore/Grand Rapids, SD
Billings (hopefully to catch a Mustangs game)
Yellowstone/Jackson, WY
Vancouver and Victoria

2. NYC - Atlanta (1300 miles)

The Stops

Washington DC & Annapolis (Nats game)
Richmond/Charlottesville, VA
Durham/Chapel Hill (hoping to catch a Mudcats game)
Either Charlotte or the Outer Banks, NC
Charleston, SC
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.
