Taking a trip
My first RV trip across middle america, from indy to vegas.
Searched hard to find points of interest, but couldnt find anything..i guess im looking to hear where someone stoped along the way, what they saw, and would they stop again?
Searched hard? You must have very tough standards -- I-70 crosses some of the most spectacular country in the world. What are you looking for?
Actually I-70 travel is a frequent subject for discussion on this forum. If you use the Gray Search button on the top and enter "I-70" (without the qoutes) and select the topic called "Gear-Up" you will find 53 messages and suggestions for places to check out.
But just a few of my "must-sees" along I-70 from Indianapolis:
Take the tour of the St. Louis Arch, Vivian's Restaurant in nearby St. Charles -- 2nd best margaritas in the world. Dodge City, Kansas is not too far off the road; Denver is a cool town, surrounded by some fun places. One of those would be Indian Springs -- soak in waters once shared by Jesse James, (http://www.roadtripamerica.com/places/indsprgs.htm). Take a detour and drive through Arches National Park. Back on I-15 and then another detour through Cedar Breaks, Bryce and Zion national parks and then it is only a skip and a jump to Las Vegas.
One of the arches
It really looks like this:
A couple more suggestions
Have you visited the Lincoln Tomb and home in Springfield, IL? It's not on I-70, but is just north of your intended route. Also along I-70, I enjoyed the Eisenhower Presidential Library (and burial site) at Abilene, KS. When I visited there last, there was a "traveling" exhibit of presidential personal possesions with some items for each president -- including Washington's wooden teeth. In Colorado, Rocky Mtn Natl Park is just to the north of your route -- go for a short hike above treeline and see if you can spot some pikas! West of Denver, check out Georgetown, a quaint little town with a marvel of railroad engineering; the Georgetown "Loop." You can take an excursion train (pulled by a STEAM locomotive!) over the rebuilt loop -- a circular railroad trestle that rises high above the valley/canyon floor. Magnificent!
So great to see you back on the board
We have missed similar gems from you of late.
