I am currently planning my first cross country trip due to work.
The start is in Northern Virginia, destination is Seattle.
I plan to be on the road for 5-7 days, no more than 9h a day, and make a stop in Denver to visit friends.
And that's also where my wit ends.
Should I take I80 over Chicago/DesMoines/Omaha, or I70 over Indianapolis/St.Louis/Kansas City.
Is the traffic worse on one or the other? Are there more sights?
Also, where are good stops between Denver and Seattle? I love staying in smaller towns to get the local feel :)
I have never been through either of these states and any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
