Will be traveling this May with two kids, aged 11 and 9. We were planning on doing the drive in 3 days - we're planning on putting in some long hours. No budget limit.
I'm hoping to get some suggestions of things to do along the way to stop and stretch our legs for an hour or two. We were originally thinking of stopping in Kansas City, Oklahoma City OR Sante Fe for half a day - e.g. drive 4 hours in the am, spend the afternoon, then get back in the car for 4 hours in the evening, but we can't seem to make the timing work.
Am also hoping to get some recommendations for interesting / unique places to stay or eat.
We are open to taking the interstates ... or not.
