Hello there. We are going to Denver this first week of June but instead of flying all the way down to Denver, we decided to go San Diego and do the road trip from there to Denver to view some nice places while driving. We actually don't have plan to stop over and look each nice places that we pass by while travelling. We just want to do the road trip to Denver because we thought it will be fun. This is the first time family vacation for all of us so we are renting a van (passenger capacity 15) from San Diego with 4 kids ages from 2 to 13 years old. Instead of doing the whole 15 hours straight of driving to go to Denver, we plan to stop in the middle where we can get some sleep and continue the next day early morning to arrive Denver before sunset if we can. At first, we wanted to stop at Las Vegas for sleep over then continue to Denver the next day but then later we decided that it is not a good idea to stop by there before the graduation so we decided to stop by in the middle between San Diego and Denver and based in my research is UTAH. We don't know anything about UTAH so any suggestions or help is very much appreciated. We wanted to know where is the best place or closest hotel or place (town/city) to stay overnight (fastest route to reach Denver) or is there a hotel on our way that we can just stop and check in? I am not familiar or not know at all the places in Utah so I am kind of hesitate to drive but everything already plan ahead and too late to back down. So, to make the story short, I need to make sure that we will not get lost or something in the middle of nowhere (you know what I mean :)). It is pretty exciting but scary at the same time because we are not familiar with the roads. Anyway, Is there a place you can recommend where we can stop and get some sleep for the night and continue the next morning to Denver? Any advise is very much appreciated. Thank you in advance.
