I am new to the site and I would love to hear from people who has done this trip and can give me on suggestions on where to stop when driving with children.
I have driven from Md to Co before through the I-70 route by myself and it was not what I was expecting. I wanted to experience driving by small towns, not just driving on big highways all the way to CO. Now, I am driving with my mother and my almost 3 year old son and I want to experience I-80. I understand to experience a true road trip with lots of small towns, farms and small communities along the way I would probably need to get off the interstate and take smaller highways. I am a little nervous driving with such an active little boy for so many hours and I am not sure I want to add that many hours more to my trip, but any suggestion is appreciated. I am really looking forward to hear from people who has done this trip specially with kids and can give me suggestions on "roadside" attractions for kids, nice place to stop with kids, places for activities or anything of a kind.
I am planning on going at the first week of August s the weather will be nice.
