    Default Welcome!

    Welcome to the RoadTrip America Forum!

    Yep, you posted in the correct forum. Summer trips being loosely defined as anything from Memorial Day up until Labor Day.

    The quick route has you heading up US-25, joining up with I-40 into Nashville, then I-24 to I-57 and in Saint Louis, on to I-70, which will take you straight to Denver. This would roughly three days of driving on the way out, figuring on 500-550 miles a day. Four days at the in-laws, and that's the first week.

    Since you're already out that way, I would take a route from Denver heading into Utah through Canyonlands and Glen Canyon Parks, then on to the Grand Canyon. You could do this at a leisurely pace in three or four days.

    From Grand Canyon, start heading back East. Maybe stop at Canyon de Chelly, Albuquerque and/or Santa Fe. East on I-40, into Memphis and then if you desire, up into Nashville. From there, it is an easy day's drive back to your home in Greenville.
