We're moving from the Salt Lake Valley to Northern Virginia (passing through Lafayette, IN) the 1st week of May. We'll be driving our 2005 Toyota Sienna and it will be the 4 of us--me, DH, and the two kiddos, ages 6 and 9. (Harry the dog is going to have to fly, methinks.)
The van has a DVD player, thankfully.
We plan on taking about 7 days--we don't want the days to be too excruciating and we'd like to have a few fun stops along the way.
We LOVE kitschy-silly stuff (having once lived in a town with a monument to the Boll Weevil) so would love to know of off-the-beaten-path stuff not to miss. Not really interested in major cities.
Our only definite stop will be in Lafayette, IN. Other than that we're trying to decide:
Southern WY vs Northern CO?
Iowa/Northern IL vs Missouri/Southern IL?
(will be stopping in Lafayette IN)
Southern OH/WV or Mid OH/PA? and then on into VA.
Any advice will be appreciated! I'll be posting individual questions in the right forums and finding my way around for other stuff.
