When is this trip panned for?

How many people, ages and interests would help with advice also?

How far west?

You will not be able to get to west coast & back in 2 weeks with enjoyment.

Hi DAM.

I was thinking Black Hills and Yellowstone myself with some big drives too and from Ohio, a la a Wings trip, as long as they are not talking prior to May/June.

Well, if you are going to fly west and drive back (although fly west and fly back will extend your range, and you will have one way rental fee whatever). Into Salt Lake City, through the Tetons to Yellowstone and back via the Black Hills ( Mount Rushmore, Badlands, Devils Tower) is a great option in two weeks.

West Coast, say San Francisco. Portland or Seattle will be possible but will cut down your time at any single location over two weeks, and give you some big drives back to Ohio.

What's your wish list and let's see if we can suggest an option or two.

For instance one-way, LA to Cincinnati via Las Vegas, the Grand Canyon, a bit of Utah and Colorado can be done in two weeks, although it will be fast paced.

still need to know time of year? Do you want to see the national parks?

The route to include YNP, Tetons, Rushmore, RMNP-- love those areas. We've driven from Ohio and made that loop in 2+ weeks.

Or-- Grand Canyon, Sedona, Monument Valley, Danta Fe, Taos, Albuquerque-- love the whole soutwest.

Or-- Zion, Bryce, Capital Reef, Page-- in the Utah area.

Really need to know more info about when you are traveling and what it is that you are interested in?
