  1. In Cleveland, stop by the West Side market, an indoor/outdoor city market with tons of vendors. Last time I drove from Alexandria to Chicago, we stopped at the market for food in the morning and ate at a rest stop along 80/90.

    1. You may want to repost these on the various regional boards corresponding to your itinerary -- Great Lakes, Chicago, Great Plains, Mountain States, California. The Baltimore & DC board only covers the first 40 miles or so of your itinerary.

      1. re: masha

        I still think there could be a 'Road Trip' board for this, but the posts would probably get ignored without the regional board questions. carry on.
