    what are the must sees along the way or worth driving to from Salt Lake City UT, driving back to Michigan?
    Yellowstone National,
    Golden Arches,
    What else would be fun to see along the way?
    We will be traveling with a lot of little kids ages 7 and under so even some fun fairs or children museums?

    Welcome to RTA!

    How long do you have for the trip? SLC to Grand Rapids is about 1500 miles, so you'd want to do that in no less than 3 days going direct. Adding Yellowstone to the itinerary would be great if you had the time -- bear in mind that it's about 320 miles to Yellowstone from SLC (about 6 hours), then to do Yellowstone justice, you'd need a couple of days at least. Also, you may be running into a lodging issue for Yellowstone at this late stage, assuming this trip is for this summer.

    Golden Arches -- well, I immediately thought of McDonald's :-) but then realized that you might mean Arches National Park. That's in a different direction from SLC -- instead of North to Yellowstone, you'd be heading southeast. Arches is about 240 miles from SLC, or about 5 hours (since some of it would be over non-interstate highways).

    "A lot of little kids ages 7 and under" ... how many????? Most kids of that age are happy with a playground such as those found at city parks.
