Hi guys and gals
We are a family of four with a 10 and an 11 year old and we are really excited about our first 'true' road trip! We're heading to Denver to visit family and friends and plan to depart on August 3rd to return on or about the 19th. We've never traveled farther then to NYC so we're really green when it comes to this and we're hoping for some of that friendly help we're seen extended on the forum. Primarily we'd love your feedback if you think our expectations are reasonable. From what we've researched we figure we could make it with a two nights three day trip on the way and we would love some advice on hotels or motels along the way that feature a pool (got to get the kids to expand the accumulated energy!) and the best route to get us there and back. We're going to save our days to visit our folks so sightseeing on the way is not the priority though if there's a must see along the way we would sure like your advice, especially if it'll get the kids interested. Google maps will only take you so far and we greatly appreciate human insight on how to make this a really enjoyable trip. Thanks for looking and for the tips!
