I'm diving into our plans for our October road trip.
Leave Springfield, IL on I55, then Rte 61 to Memphis for a night. Head west on I40 to Little Rock, and I30 to Texarkana. South on Rte 59 to Houston for two nights.
We'll head west to San Antonio for two nights (we have friends there).
Heading home, we'll take Rte 281 & I35 north to Dallas, Rte 69 north to Joplin, MO, get on I44 to Springfield, MO for an overnight, and then I44 & I55 home.
I'm researching the trip leg by leg, and I've found some great between stops ideas on the forums--thanks!!!! Where I'm running into some blank area is Oklahoma. I'm not hitting Oklahoma City or Tulsa. What is along Rte 69 that's worth stopping for?
