  1. Default road trip from Nashville to Los Angeles.

    We would like to take a leisure road trip from Nashville to Los Angeles in July for 5 days trip, but have no where to stop for sightseeing and kid's break time, I have a 5 year old with me.
    Please let me know where to stop for some kids activities and lodging. thanks

    Assuming you will be taking I40 straight to LA...

    There is a one stop your five years young will enjoy... A must stop for kids on I40...

    Meteor Crater Rest Area. It's between Winslow AZ and Flagstaff AZ...

    If the weather is good your kid can spend easily an hour or so climbing rock.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    It would take 4 reasonably comfortable days of driving from Nashville to LA with a young one, so you do have some 'play time'. Just a bit of time from the car in a City park to allow the little one to let off some steam can be enough, but heres a list of places for a little R&R just off Interstate.
