Avoid? Can't think of any....

Mesa Verde is my favorite too!

Glacier National Park. Save it for last, because it is AWESOME. Grizzly bears, moose, deer...and NOT a million tourists in buses...like Yellowstone or Yosemite. I would drive back there from Miami in a heartbeat. Just make sure it is in July or August, to be sure the Going to the Sun Highway over Logan's Pass is open.

If you want to stay in Yellowstone you need reservations a year in advance. Especally if you want a cabin.

I get a kick out of seeing all the answers to what is available west of the Mississippi yet not a one actually mentioned the Mississippi it self. Having navigated that river from the Mouth of the Ohio to St Paul, Mn several times on our boats and remembering all the good times and sights, I gringe at all that was missed by so many! Even a pig farm, a crop or wind farm in the midwest has it's source of beauty and taking the time to visit places like the Amana Colonies or Staying in a bed and breakfast in Davenport, Ia or Galena, Ill shouldn't be missed. Anybody ever hear of the history of General Dodge or Ullysis Grant's house in Galena. Following the Lewis and Clark Trail accross the USA offers more sights than any one 3 week vacation can offer.

Agree, but......the area has a ton of things to do.....as any place, but do not produce pictures like this........

I have traveled, and the western state's are in bedded in my memory with the things I have seen out there.........Mississippi and east.......wonderful also........Want to mention, if one has the time, Glacier Park.......then north.......into Canada to see what the western Rockie's really are like!

Hi Again,Graniteman
I Love IRV2, so many Great People & Ideas You stated You want this to be a special Family Trip. Has your family made any decisions?
I recommend:
1. Check out TrailLink.com You can search by state various Bike Trails you may wish to include in your travel plans.
2. I highly recommend you stop in at your Library Video Section; they should have videos of all the great places that have been recommended and they are very informative. This allows your family to enjoy an hour tour, including history and highlights of an area. Could give an insight to what peaks an interest.

Then contact each state's tourism site and download updated info for review & planning.
Please consider the advice of weather warnings for various locations.
Looking forward to hearing from Ya.

I agree it should not be missed. I loved the Mississippi and St Croix (sp)
I have gone from Mpls/St. Paul to Iowa by boat.(Cruiser) Not far but still a blast and seeing all the small river towns and going thru a Lock & Dam should also be done. So far best vacation I have ever been on. Just me and a old friend. Nothing like camping on the beach and having a barge go by you @ night.. Kinda like in a CG and have a train go by.
Even going down HWY 61 that follows the Mississippi, a great time. We took that trip in the MH for a few miles last year, A good time and lots to see and do.
Plan a trip you won't be sorry.
JS,
Tim
