BLACK HILLS, GRANT TETONS, AND YELLOWSTONE. CRITIQUE MY ITENEARY PLEASE

Jump to last reply

We are planning a driving trip from Columbus Oh to the Black Hills, Yellowstone, Tetons, and
then back with this itinerary leaving September 23 and returning October 11. We just want to
sightsee. We aren’t campers or hikers.

3 days driving toward Rapid City with perhaps ending the third day with a drive through part of
the Badlands. About 22 hours driving.

3 days in the Black Hills area.

2 days driving to Gardner Wy. About 8 or so hours driving.

3 days in Yellowstone. We have reserved 3 nights at Yellowstone Lake Hotel.

3 days in the Tetons. We have reserved 3 nights at Signal Mt.

1 day driving to maybe Rawlins on mainly Rt 287. 1 day driving.

3 days driving back to Columbus Oh. On 80, 74, and 70. 24 hours driving.

The AAA recommends driving around Chicago to 90 and Google maps suggests driving on 70
and 74 to near Omaha and north on 29 to 90. It might be around 4 PM when we get to the
Chicago area. Any suggestions?

I would also like any suggestions as to the route from the Tetons on our return and the itinerary in
general.

Any general comments or recommendations on the sights, places to eat and stay and such also
appreciated.
