Seattle to Washington DC

Ladies and Gents,
After an interesting 2 years in Seattle it's time to transfer to Washington DC. While the two locations might offer a good discussion, I was wondering about the baffling number of sights to see along the way. My current planned route is Seattle to Boise to Yellowstone/Teton to Devil's Tower to Bandlands to Sioux Falls to Milwaukee to Jackson Center to Pittsburgh then DC.
I love national and state parks and have a good route until the Badlands...but what about between there and DC?? Milwaukee is a must along with Jackson Center but I am open to all good places. Anybody have some favorite spots along the way...ideally good parks, small/quaint towns, or good attractions?

If your route takes you anywhere near the dams along the Missouri River you can enjoy a night at the Corps of Engineers campgrounds. Very nice and clean campgrounds with large well spaced sites. Usually no water on site but all with electric. Water and dump station available. Reasonable prices too. If you find Yellowstone sites booked there are several Nat. Forest campgrounds on the west side just outside of West Yellowstone. Easy access into the park from there. Again, many sites have electric and water and dump nearby.

Enjoy and have a great trip.

I think you ought to consider staying on 90 and seeing Glacier NP THEN Yellowstone and Tetons. We dont like that section from the WA state line to Pocatello. BTW try and stay at Coulter Bay in the Tetons. Full hookups.

Seattle to DC

I will check out your suggestion in the Tetons. I was hoping to look for something other than 90 as I've already done that route and was looking for something new. Anybody got some suggestions for good stops in eastern South Dakota, southern Minnesota, or southern Wisconsin?

Western South Dakota is a must, but after that...I'm lost? I'm looking for something between points G and L on the attached picture, J is Jackson Center so that's a must. Any help is really really appreciated.

Map is attached...if it doesn't show up.

Chicago doesn't exactly qualify for a "small town" but we love the Museum of Science and Industry there.
