Thanks for all the great tips and advice so far! Our interests are all across the board and want to see parts of the country we haven't yet. Rushmore is the only definite on the list so far. We've been to Yellowstone, but have family there so we'll stop for a visit. I think we will visit Oregon, Northern CA. We'll take a northern route out, but not sure on return trip, that's still open.

I would have to agree with Bryce and Zion, I also LOVE MOAB, UT. I go here once a year minimum, usually twice! Arches in Moab is fun and beautiful. The river and river canyon is amazing.

If you go to the Black Hills to see Rushmore and Devils Tower, make sure you include Crazy Horse right down the road from Rushmore. If you hit Yellowstone,,,be sure to hit Grand Teton National Park and Glacier National Park. Craters of the Moon in southern Idaho is something else. We are from central Texas and we worked at an RV park on the Oregon coast that we loved.....Turtle Rock RV Park in Gold Beach, Oregon....right next to Highway 101 and the Pacific. The Oregon coast with its seastacks is second to none. The lighthouses are an interesting tour ...especially the one at Battery Point in Crescent City, California. In northern California,,,,you have the Redwood Forests, Lassen Volcano National Park, Mt Shasta, ....further south is Yosemite, which I consider God's living room,,,,further south is Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Park....fantastic trees that blow your mind with their size. Coming east from there is Death Valley....quite an experience. Then there're 5 national parks in Utah,,,,all of them distinctively different from the others: Zion, Bryce, Capital Reef, Canyonlands, and Arches. Dead Horse State Park near Canyonlands and Moab has a view that will blow you away. The San Juan Skyway in the southwest part of Colorado is stunning from Dolores, Rico, Tellurida, Placerville, Ridgway, Ouray, Silverton and Durango. Mesa Verde National Park is near that area and worth the visit. Then you have Royal Gorge, Pikes Peak, and Garden of the Gods in the Front Range of the Rockies in Colorado. You wouldn't be able to do all this on one trip,,,,,but all that I mentioned are worth the visits.

If you go through South Dakota I would recommend a stop at Wall Drug. If you're going through North Dakota into Montana then I would recommend going to Custer National battlefield. If you go across South Dakota and Wyoming Cody would be another good stop. I've done all 48 continental states and Alaska on a motorcycle so I'm pretty familiar with different things to see.

Ditto on Moab Utah. You have to really good national parks right there Arches National Park and Canyonlands National Park. It is well worth the stop.

Oregon state parks are an awesome value for camping - $30-$35 a night for full hookups. You will have to book in advance (or be flexible on locations) on the weekends during the summer (june to aug)

Any reccomendations for the north side of the Twin Cities?

Sounds like a lot for 2-3 weeks, but should still be fun.

If you're actually intent on going to the west coast, with an intermediate stop in Mn, I believe you will need more then 2 or 3 weeks. All you will be doing is driving! We left from Ohio (N.E.) in 2014 with stops in S. Dakota, Wyoming, Utah, Arizona and back to Ohio. Took us 5 weeks, and we weren't able to see everything we wanted to. You could do it in 2 or 3 weeks, but you won't be anyplace very long. Good luck with your trip!
