Hello all. I am new to this forum. I just stumbled across it when browsing the web for ideas for my upcoming road trip.
My wife-to-be and I live in Minneapolis. We are going to Massachusetts in October to be married. For our honeymoon, we plan on driving from Massachusetts to Colorado Springs. The plan is to leave on a Sunday morning and be in Colorado Springs by the following Wednesday so that we can spend a couple of days out there. That basically gives us 3 or 4 days of driving time.
We do not plan on stopping anyplace for any significant amount of time (except for food and sleep). But we do want to make the road trip entertaining by driving through some scenic areas.
Rather than take the direct route from MA, we plan on swinging south a little towards Tennessee so that we can drive through the Great Smoky Mountains. We will then make our way across Tennessee so that we can go through Nashville. But from there, we are not sure which way to go. We can either go through Arkansas and Oklahoma and then up to Colorado Springs or through Missouri and Kansas into Colorado. But we are not sure which direction would provide a more scenic route.
Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
