My wife are doing our second road trip, this time from Dallas to Littleton, CO this coming labor day weekend to visit some great friends. Leaving Friday morning and probably gonna heading back on Monday. I know it's approximately an 11 hour drive, just wanted to get drive tips, any areas of concern, good place to eat and sights to see close to the route we are taking. Google maps is suggesting US-287 and I-25. Thanks in advance for all you veterans of the road! Advance Happy Labor day weekend!!
