My fiance and I are going to be driving from Santa Fe to New Jersey next week. We'll be taking 40 through New Mexico, Texas and Tennesse, and then 81 through Virginia, West Virginia and PA, and then 78 through NJ. I'm all set on the route (drove it last month), but am trying to finalize our stops.
We need to get to Nashville by Day 2, and New Jersey by Day 4. I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to where to stay in Oklahoma on Day 1. We'd love to stay somewhere near a great barbeque stop. On Day 3, we are thinking that we want to stay in Lexington or Staunton, VA. Which would you recommend?
Another other recommendations about quirky places to stop along the way would be appreciated!
