Hey road trippers!
My dog and I will be driving from Los Angeles to Virginia Beach in April to move with my husband who is in the Navy.
I am planning on taking I-40 and I would like to do it in a week or so. I would like to stop and see the sights along the way, but not take any major detours.
Here's what I'm thinking so far...
Day 1: Los Angeles to Flagstaff (437 miles)
Hit Grand Canyon South Rim either that afternoon or next morning.
Day 2: Flagstaff to Albuquerque (324 miles)
Petrified forest, meteor crater
Day 3: Albuquerque to Oklahoma City (541 miles)
Day 4: Oklahoma City to Little Rock (338 miles)
Day 5: Little Rock to Nashville (349 miles)
Check out Memphis on the way
Day 6: Nashville to Roanoke (438 miles)
Day 7: Roanoke to Virgina Beach (295 miles)
To those of you familiar with this route, does this look doable?
Any suggestions for sight seeing along the way? I'm more into outdoorsy stuff and food than I am into history, and I will be traveling with a dog.
Any military hotels you know of on this route with good rates for a traveling military spouse?
Thank you in advance for the advice!
