Hi - we are planning to drive from Dallas to Sacramento at the end of July for a family reunion. We will be traveling with our 2 children, both below 13 years. We have mapped out the journey online, which will take us through Amarillo, Alberquque, Flagstaff, Bakersfield and then north to Sacramento.
- Realistically, how many days should we anticipate the drive will be? We would like to be able to stop at a couple of attractions on the way, but not too many as we do not want to arrive tired or late for our reunion.
- How many hours and miles should we plan to cover in a day?
- Are certain routes more scenic than others?
- Do we need to take any precautions along the way because of the hot summer?
