  1. Default Whats the best Route to take

    Hi, we are a couple of babyboomer Aussies and in Sept will be picking up a RV in Las Vegas and then driving across the US to New York via Memphis. We've got 27 days to do it and I'm wondering which would be the better route, mid route (Highway 70) or bottom route (Highway 40). We like scenery and history, and help would be appreciated.

    Default set your standard

    Welcome to the RTA forum!

    Best is always very very subjective. I personally like I-70 and its views as you travel through Utah and Colorado. However, I-40 would be a more direct route, with some nice views in its own right, and it takes you along the path of historic route 66, so there are plenty of things to see an do in that area too.

    I guess it will just depend upon what your personal hopes are. With 27 days, you've got plenty of time, so you could also zig zag around a bit.

    Thankfully, there are no wrong answers here, just a lot of very good options.

    Yep, Highway I-70 is epic & scenic, I-40 is beautiful too.
    If it's a round trip, perhaps consider mixing it up with both routes.
