3 Week Road Trip - Chicago to Vegas (via TN and TX) Help please!~!!

Jump to last reply

Hi Everyone :)

A friend and I (both 22) have 3 weeks to Roadtrip USA! :) Just a taster - I wish we had longer... after doing a bit of research there is just so much to see.

We will have both done New York and L.A/San Diego area and will begin from Chicago.

Would really really appreciate any advice or recommendations on the below itinerary.. This is only a rough itinerary so open to suggestions... This includes the places we would love to see.

This trip will be from 10 - 31 August :)

10 August- Chicago (arriving PM)

11 August- Chicago

12 August -Chicago or Gattlinburg

13 August- Gattlinburg (possibly fly from Chicago to Knoxville to save time? and drive to Gattlingburg) - Would like to take in a bit of the Blue Ridge Parkway and Smokey Mountains (drive to NC and travel the BRP to Asheville)

14 August-Asheville... BRP and back to Gattlinburg??

15 August-Drive to Memphis ---- going to be a long day of driving... Lunch at Nashville?

16 August- Memphis

17 August -Afternoon drive to New Orleans

18 August- New Orleans

19 August- New Orleans

20 August- Houston

21 August- Houston or San Antonio --- dont know much about things to see/do in Houston?

22 August- San Antonio

23 August -San Antonio

24 August - Fly to Pheonix early morning - pick up car hire and travel to Grand Canyon - Evening to see Gran Canyon sunset.

25 August - Day at Grand Canyon - Evening drive to Page, AZ

26 August - Antelope Canyon, Horseshoe Bend

27 August - Drive Page to Vegas

28 August - Vegas

29 August - Vegas

30 August - Vegas

31 August - Depart 6AM for Cancun (to relax after the crazy 3 weeks above :) )

I appreciate this is a lot of ground to cover in 3 weeks... Is this do-able? Or utterly ridiculous?

Our 4 nights in Vegas are confirmed 27 - 31 August... so this cannot change... the rest is flexible.

Thank you in advance.
