I just found out that my husband and I will be departing on a cross country road trip from upstate New York to Colorado Springs, CO in the next month.
I am very excited and looking forward to seeing some of the country on our way.
We know we will be making a B-Line for the Chicago area on our first day to stay with family there. We are thinking of taking the mother road (66) from Chicago to Springfield, Missori, because my hubby really want to go to the massive Bass Pro Shop store there, we also might take a side trip to Branson because we here it is the ultimate tourist trap. We don't want to just visit tourist traps, but see some of the natural wonder of the country as well. Does anyone have any suggestions on how we should make our way from Springfield or Branson to Colorado Springs. Anyone familiar with the area, who might be able to tell us some must see's or cool driving routes. We have some time and money, so we want to get the most out of this trip we can. Who knows when we will both get two weeks off from work again!
Anyone else have a road trip coming up? Where are you going? I thought with summer on it's way ( I mean I am sure it will get here soon, right?) road trips might be a fun discussion topic!
