  1. Default Chicago to Phoenix

    We are planning a road trip to Phoenix with our kids (13 & 10) to Phoenix to catch a couple of spring training games and soak up some sun!

    Since we are driving, we're trying to find the best way to get there. We see that Rte 40 takes us through the mountains and we're wondering how "strenuous" the drive is. We don't want to be nail biting and white knuckling through this drive. So, will Rte 40 take us through some major winds through the mountains? If so, any advice as to a different Rte to take?

    And, lastly, any stops that would be a "don't miss" along the way? Especially with kids?

    Thanks a ton!

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    The Interstate system is built so travelers and truckers can travel through pretty much any terrain and remain at speed. They are all built with gradual slopes and curves even when going over major mountain passes. In other words, if you are sticking to the interstates, it shouldn't be an issue at all.

    If you are working down to I-40 then much of your trip will follow Route 66, which should allow for some fun stops and detours along the way.
