Washington DC to Kansas City


My family and I (husband and 2 kids aged 2 + 4 yrs) are making the drive from DC to Kansas City. What I am trying to work out is whether to do it in 2 nights or 3? If 2, do we try to make our way to Indianapolis and then St Louis? Or if we go 3 then do we go Columbus or Cincinnati and then Indianpolis and St Louis? Help me? We also have to make the trip back and then where do we go to get home?

You also may try the Road Trips forum for this.


It's app 1100 miles so you could do the drive in 2 days also but it's recommended to do it at a more leisurely pace.

I don't know how well we can answer that for you. That is a distance that I would do in two days, unless the point of the trip was what I did along the way.

I would do the Indianapolis route.
