As we plan our month-long road trip, I'm realizing that one of our dreams is just not going to happen . . . we'd wanted to be in Greeley, CO on July 4 for the big Greeley Stampede. We thought that'd be an all-American way to celebrate July 4.
However, since I want my husband to remain profitably employed, we have to abide by the time he can take off work, and that means we simply cannot leave home in time to make it to Colorado in time. So, we're looking at Memphis, TN for July 4 -- what's cool to do there? (with daughters, ages 12 and 15; we're not looking for nightlife type things)
And since we won't make it "out west" for July 4, we're looking at going to the Cody Night Rodeo later in the month. I'm getting the impression that it's a scaled-down version of a rodeo. Will we Easterners enjoy it? Details, please!
Any other rodeo options out there of which I might not be aware?
