I am also planning my first road trip from North Florida to Colorado with my 8 year old son. I am looking for a route that will take me through some fun things to do with him. ATV, camping, zip line, site seeing. I eventually want to go to Utah for a dude ranch or another location. I plan to stay in Colorado for a couple weeks with family and use that as a "home base" while I find other activities to do such as Grand Canyon etc. Any suggestions on the best route to take from North Florida to Colorado or even through Utah and places to stop at? I don't want to push the driving time to much, I would prefer a more relaxing trip. thanks for any suggestions.
