I've been digging through the forums for a couple of weeks now and decided to dive in and register so I could ask a few questions.
My husband and I are doing a roadtrip to Yellowstone and Jackson, WY and back (Western NY is home.) I've planned our route TO Yellowstone. We'll be travelling via I-90 from NY-WY.
I wanted to take a different route home, so we'll be going mostly I-80 until we hop on 74 in Illinois. (I wanted a different route back for three reasons: 1 because we're leaving from Jackson, WY 2 to see something different and 3 to avoid the Sturgis area since it's Rally Week and traffic/hotels will be busy.)
I'm having a harder time finding great locally-owned motels for our stops home and some really great/offbeat/kitschy stops. I've been playing on the Roadtrippers app and can't seem to make up my mind. We have time for two overnight stops on the way back. I'd love to hear any suggestions you have for motels or can't miss stops along the way, especially in Nebraska and Iowa.
