I will be driving cross country (L.I. to L.A.) next month, and I'm wondering if anyone knows of worthwhile towns, cities, or nature areas along I-80 West out of Lincoln, and 76 West through Colorado to Denver.

I've done I-90 and I-70 through that section of the country, but never the 80/76 deal. I have a virtual atlas on my laptop, but I'm wondering if someone can put a face on some of these names.
