It's great for me to find out this forum. I'm planning a-week trip from Illinois to San Jose in the biginning of October. Our priority would be on scenary routes, since we have a newborn preventing us from all types of more physical activities.
Denver, CO is definitely a stop in our trip. However, I'm hesitating at how to get there (between St. Louis+Kansas City or Peoria+Omaha) and how to go from there to San Jose (between Salt Lake City + Winnemucca or Grand Junction + Las Vegas).
Any comment and idea on which road provides better views are welcomed. I'll also find it useful if you recommend me key attractions on the road so that we can stop by.
Oh yeah, and tips for a-week road trip are also welcomed. I'm particularly concerned with gas, foods, and where to stay during the trip, since we'll go through dessert. I don't know if I'm a bit over-concerned though.
Thank you so much,
