We are coming from Australia to the US in Feb 2010 planning to be in Orlando for the 4th Feb for a shuttle launch (fingers crossed it still goes ahead) and we are trying to decide how we should get back to LA to head home.
Our original plan was for 2 weeks in a RV in Florida, as my husband has never been there & this is our 10th wedding anniversay trip & then fly to LA for a week there so the girls (age 3 & 18 months at time of trip) can meet Mickey Mouse.
But it was suggested to us to spend the entire 3 weeks possibly 4 & drive from Orlando to LA. I have done a google map search on the routes & I would love to go via Colorado to see the ski fields as none of us have been that way, but I need help working out a route to follow.
There will be 5 of us in the motorhome, taking the mother in law with us, so we dont' want to be driving for hours at a time as the girls will drive us nuts & we want it to be a great experience.
So any suggestions of different routes, places to see etc that can have us go via Colorado, the Grand Canyon (I work in a place that claims to have the worlds widest canyon so I want to compare!!), Vegas to LA. And we would like around 3 days in LA at least. I have been told to stay off the back roads in the Colorado area due to the dangers so we were looking at the major highways but any sugestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in anticipation.
