My hubby and I and our 3 dogs are heading to Tennessee from Las Vegas next month. We've done this drive many times and have taken 10,40,and 70. We were thinking about maybe taking 80 this time. It'll be about 300-400 miles further depending on exactly which way we go, but we were thinking it would be nice to see something different and hopefully a little cooler weather along the way. We won't have a ton of time to stop and do stuff but any recs on things to see or places to stay? Is it worth it to do the extra miles?
Also, upon leaving Tennessee we'll be heading to New Jersey to fly out of Newark and want to stop in DC and possibly spend a day in NYC. Any other must-do stuff along the way?
Last time I asked for recs for a trip, someone told me about this italian resturant in St Louis that we stopped at - it was one of the best places I've ever eaten! So I totally trust your opinions! Thanks!
