We're going to take US-2 across the country this summer and would like some suggestions re: points of interest we shouldn't miss along the way. Also, any campgrounds, restaurants, etc. you'd recommend? Thanks!

This is a good time to sign in on GoodSam.com and use the "trip routing service." You can personalize it with all sorts of things to see and do and the service is pretty darn good!

You will be passing the southern edge of Glasier Nat'l Park, so plan to take in the wonders of that national treasure. Also, in WA state you will pass through the Alpine town of Leavenworth. The food, shopping and atmosphere is worth spending at least one full day. My wife insists on a trip to Leavenworth at least every other year, and this is the "other year" when we won't be in Washington.

May I suggest that when you get to the UP of MI that if you have been to Souix St Maire, you go and see the locks and some of the sites there.
Then you can follow the South shore of Lake Superior back to highway 2 at Wakefield on 28.
If you like water falls Black river near Iron wood,Mi has a few you have to walk back into.
There are plenty of casinos you can park at for little or no money at least there were.
Ashland WI has a RV park down on the bay Bayfield has the National lakeshore park.
Duluth Superior has alot , The Richard I Bong center for the vets right on 2 & 53 , I would leave highway 2 and follow 53 over the bridge to miss down town Superior and get on highway 35 back to highway 2 in MN there is a wayside up the hill from the junction of 2 and 35 you might want to stop at as there is a great view of the twin ports from there you can get back on 2 prety easliy from there too. Duluth has a real neat rail road musseum down town along with train rides ,after Duluth & Proctor I think you will find mostly woods for awhile .

We traveled US 2 in 2005. I can't remember even half of what we enjoyed, but some are: Havre, MT is a must see. Havre underground is quite interesting; an entire city underground to avoid the fierce winter. There is a small RV park just as you enter the city. Glacier NP has already been mentioned, we traveled through Cutbank to Browning and the Blackfeet Reservation is nice. We stayed at ST. Mary's,MT KOA(E entrance to highway to the sun) and took a day trip to Waterton and Waterton Park in Canada. This is breathtaking. Be sure to take a birth certificate and photo ID for each person.

Jim & Ingrid:
The most scenic camping spot we've ever stayed at was in the city CG @ Bayfield, WI. This CG is 1 mile north of Bayfield with many of the sites on a bluff overlooking Lake Superior. We enjoyed the boat cruise of the Apostle Islands out of Bayfield. South of Bayfield is the Chautauqua Tent Show & Theatre (www.bigtop.org), they may have a performance depending on when you are in the area. We really enjoyed this show. Waterton Lakes NP is worth the detour into Canada. Have a great trip!

Jim, I forgot to include in my previous reply this fact. If you are an RVer that carries a gun, the owner of the St.Marys KOA will store patrons guns in his safe until you return from Canada.
