Cross Country Road Trip Phoenix to Boston

Jump to last reply

Hi All! My husband, 5 year old Laberdoodle and I are planning a cross country drive from Phoenix to Cape Cod. I have an idea of how I want to get there (kinda) but not sure what real driving times are. We would like to be able to see things along the way, but with a dog they will have to be nature opportunities. We are a little flexible on dates when we can leave ( thinking right now of a start date
of August 29th with a stay at a friend's house in Heber/Overgard Az) - and need to be in Oak Park, IL on Sept. 7th. After that but we will be leaving Holland, Michigan on Sept. 10th. From there we need to arrive in Boston on Sept. 15th. After that we do not hit the road again until Oct. 8th this time heading back to Phoenix from NYC. On that portion we are looking to do parts of the Skyline, BlueRidge, and Smokey Mountains. With fall foliage in full swing we want to hop on and off the scenic routes maximizing drive time and still being able to see some beautiful vistas.
I would love some help in figuring our the scenic drives and how to factor them in both route wise and time wise ( in /Colorado/Custer State Park/Badlands and East coast portions of trip). We do want to get out of the car and can do hikes and overlooks along the way.
We would like to see Canyon de Chelly, a 2 night stay somewhere in Colorado with mountains, Custer Park, and the pretty drives there, Badlands with the scenic drive there. We know that Mount Rushmore will not allow dogs, but we think we can park and take turns checking it out (other suggestions welcomed). One other place we are thinking of is Niagra Falls.
Thank you all for route and itinerary suggestions! With Labor Day/Fall leaves I know I will have to start booking places to stay asap. We are not campers so hotels are the plan.
