Hi all! We are planning a road trip in August starting from the Dallas area and ending in Durango. So far I've planned a night stay in Albequerque, NM for one night and we are going to check out the Sandia Tram. I've also booked a cabin in the Durango area for our stay. With 5 kids, I'm wondering if anyone has some tips on traveling with lots of kiddos. Also, with gas prices the way they are we are looking for coupons or bargains for any attractions along the way. If anyone has any ideas on that please let me know. Also, if there is anyone that has made a similar trip and has ideas on attractions in the Albequerque or Durango area, that would be great. We of course are going to go on the Silverton train and check out Pagosa Springs.
It's funny, when I was a kid, my parents just threw us in the Winnie and we went, no planning or anything. These days you can do so much planning just from the internet that it almost takes the fun out of a road trip! :)
Oh, also, we are big foodies, so if you have some really cool hole in the wall places that are off the beaten path let us know!
Ok, really, one more thing. I love those sites like the biggest ball of twine or the biggest watermelon. Those ideas would be appreciated too!
