I'm very new to this site but I am seeking help on planning a road trip and it seems like everyone on here is very helpful and knowledgeable so I figured I'd give it a try!
About me: I just turned 25, I've been living and working in Boston since graduating college in May 2012 - I grew up in the northeast and have been itching to switch things up and adventure out West. So I found and applied to some jobs and landed one in Denver which I am very excited about! It all happened very fast and now I find myself needing to make my way from Boston to Denver before a job start date of June 1.
I am hoping to do this drive in 4 days, with 3 overnight stays. It would be great to split up the days evenly as far as mileage (~500 miles per day) but I am flexible if it means having my overnights be in better locations.
I'm looking for advice on best routes and specifically, advice on what cities/towns I should plan to stay overnight at on the way. The company will help me pay for the lodging for my drive, but they require me to book hotels through their travel department which means that I have to plan everything before I head out (takes out some of the fun and spontaneity of a road trip unfortunately). I'm looking for a more or less direct route, nice scenery is a plus, and places with nice lodging/good food options would be great (hey, if the company is gonna pay for it I might as well stay somewhere nice).
Thanks in advance for all the help!
