Hello! New to the forum. I would love any advice on where to stay and visit on a summer trip from Houston to Yellowstone with four kids. Ages 2 (almost 3), 4, 11, and 15. The dates will be in Late June or early August. We are open and flexible with dates. I know it is a very long way, but 10 days is the max we can be gone and that's stretching it, would prefer 8. We will be traveling via car and would like to stop in Ouray for a couple of days for sure, but if anyone has overnight ideas they would be appreciated. Tent camping (weather permitting), KOA cabins, or moderate hotels are our preference. We have an RV but it is just too big to pull that far.
We've done the Disney thing several times, and usually make a beach and river trip each summer, but I would really love for my children to experience some of the natural beauty of this area and just have a fun family road trip!
Thank you for any tips.
