whitestavern Posted July 19, 2012 Share Posted July 19, 2012 We are planning a cross country trip for this fall. It may not happen depending on dh's work situation, but needs to be planned so if we can go, we'll be all prepared :) I'm hoping the WTMers can help! Here's what I'm looking for (and I'll be posting a new thread for each "leg" of our trip): -recommendations for inexpensive chain or other hotels in these areas -recommendations for inexpensive but nice, clean, safe campgrounds in these areas -recommendations for "must see" things in these areas Our second "leg" will be from OH to Chicago, likely stopping for a night in Indiana. Not sure about how long we'll be in Chicago, a night or two, and we do have friends there so we may be staying with them. Here's what we have already expressed interest in seeing, but we'd love feedback on whether they're worth it or not. We know we will not be able to see everything we'd like to, it's more or less a wish list to cull from. Also, not knowing any of these areas, the things we'd like to do may just be too far from the area we'll be staying in. -Indiana Dunes Nat'l Lakeshore -Amish country (what towns would be best?) -South Bend (is Notre Dame worth a visit?) -Lincoln's birthplace (too out of the way?) -Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago Oriental Institute, river cruise, Millennium Park, Mississippi Palisades State Park We would so appreciate any help from those of you who are familiar with these areas!!!
