Default Going on a short cruise this summer .. where to hit up?

Here's the short trip I'm planning to do with a few buddies in my Soarer.. Over 10,000kms there and back and I'm planning on doing it within 3 weeks while visiting various landmarks.

We're leaving from Montreal, Canada and our final destination is going to be Long Beach, CA.

Just looking for a few suggestions on "must-see" places

Skip Nebraska go through Chicago to Minneapolis and hit the black hills in south Dakota. If you're into windy mountain roads you'll find plenty. I grew up there actually.

You are limiting where you can hit up based on your planned route.The lower you swing south, the better the stops will be.

Sounds like an awesome trip. Definitely go through downtown Chicago. It's a pretty cool sight for someone who have never been there before.

I suggest going to Arizona to see the Petrified Forest National Park, grand canyon and Las Vegas Nevada.
Why are you going to Long Beach?
