    Default Nice present!

    Howdy and welcome to the RTA Trip Advice Forum -- when is this trip scheduled for? And what kinds of sites interest you? Historical, scenic, shopping, hiking, etc?

    This trip will probably be in mid July, looking for historical, scenic, parks places to eat along the way and lodging

    Probably the easiest way to get where you're going is via I-40. Which brings a lot of history and scenic parks with it: Memphis (Elvis' home Graceland), Hot Springs National Park in Arkansas, the Oklahoma City Murrah Memorial, Route 66 history in Tucumcari NM, Albuquerque has many things to offer, Petrified Forest National Park, and the granddaddy of them all, the Grand Canyon.

    If you are in the Sallisaw OK area around dinner time, depending on the day of the week, check out Shad's Catfish Hole about 7 miles south of I-40. (Not open on Monday or Tuesday and only open on Sundays for brunch, and T-W-Th-Fr-Sa for dinner.) Great food if you like catfish, but they also have chicken and steak.

    In Albuquerque, there is the Rio Grande State Nature Center just off Candelaria, Petroglyph National Monument, and the Smithsonian's National Museum of Nuclear Science. There are also lots of good places to eat there. A few years back, we ate with a friend (who lives in ABQ) at Seasons Bar and Grill -- eat in the bar and the food's the same but a lot cheaper. That same friend also loves Little Anita's Mexican Restaurant in Old Town.
