So I have decided to do a long distance road trip experience this summer and thought it would be fun to bring my granddaughters(ages 5 and 8) along. I have driven the CA coast and done the AZ to CA trek a number of times so I know what my time behind the wheel limits are. They have done the 5 hr drive to and from CA-AZ also, so I know pushing another few hours on them is going to be tough. I want to make it fun and educational for them and have a few planned places to head to, Grand Canyon being one. I would like help planning a route with some fun stops along the way that are also not going to be all day stops, but more of a point of interest type stop. Is the I-10 best, or heading over from the Grand Canyon and going along the top of NM, TX and then down through LA and into MS and finally FL? Our end point is the West side of FL (St. Petersburg)
ps, I read a thread from a few years ago from a guy who was trying to do it in 3 days and you all gave him a hard time, he never reported back on his trip which bums me out, I was really looking forward to reading how that went. For the record I don't plan on getting there in three days.
