Hello, I am moving out west to Denver, CO early September from the Washington D.C. metro area. I wanted to get some feedback on which routes to take that will make for some good stops on the way. We are thinking of making it ~4-5 day trip.
St. Louis seems to stand out as a good place to stay, I am looking for advice on any other cool cities to visit on the journey. Any opinions are welcome. I'll be moving with my girlfriend, both of us are 25, but not necessarily only looking for late night fun scenes. Detours are an option as well, but we wouldn't want to stray too far off-route (we are considering going to Nashville).
Thanks for all the feedback and help, we are beginners in traveling about the country.
