Will we want to get off the highway and explore random cities and towns?, or will seeing what we see from I-40 and the rest- and restaurant/walking around stops we'll be making, be enough?
Any reasons that we would, or should, not want to stop in any of these towns:
Belle Meade, TN
Barstow, CA (not on I-40 but close to a major road)
They all seem to have decent gas/food/lodging options close to I-40 or other major road. Please keep the advice and suggestions coming! ;-)
