Hey guys, I'm new to the forum:
I'm planning on taking a 4 days (3 nights) trip from Raleigh, NC to Boulder, CO. Furthest west I've been from the great Tar Heel State is Louisiana (North= Pennsylvania and South= Venezuela). I need help planning good stops along the way. We're going to be going through St. Louis, MO and Lawerence and then on to CO.
I would like recommendations for places to stay/visit outside of the bigger cities (St. Louis, Kansas City). The lonely planet suggests Hannibal, MO (North of St. Louis) or Independence (East of Kansas City).
I'm from a part of the country where the nooks and crannies are typically the best part of the area. Where are they in KY, MO, and KS?
