Hi, we are in the early planning stages of a road trip with our three boys (ages 6,8,10) this summer (July-August), from Southern California to Yellowstone Nat. Park in Wyoming. We want to take our time getting there and back, by stopping at national landmarks and doing fun things along the way. Any advice on "must-see" attractions are appreciated! We are inexperienced road trippers and have no idea where to start in making this plan.
We want this trip to be about seeing the amazing natural wonders this country has to offer, and spending time together exploring it. We are interested in stops that would include things like hiking, biking, swimming, spelunking, sand dunes, hot springs, natural wonders..... I know that might be asking a bit much to find all those things, but we are wanting our stops to be less about amusement parks and more about nature.
Has anyone ever taken a similar road trip and have a wonderfully constructed itinerary they would like to share? LOL! Seriously though, ANY advice would be helpful! Thanks
