Are We Coming to Your Neck of the Woods?

The summer before last, my family took a road trip that lasted almost 4 weeks. We had always wanted to do that and had a fabulous time. We went to Tennessee, Kentucky, Chicago, St. Louis, Mt. Rushmore, Yellowstone, Jackson Hole, Arches National Park, and Minneapolis. We saw beautiful country and made some great family memories.

Well - we're doing it again! We won't be gone as long this summer - only 3 weeks this time. But we're making another cross-country trek and we're so excited. We are in the "research and planning" stage at this point and that's where you come in. We'd love some help. First of all - here are some of our major stopping points -

Atlanta, Georgia
New Orleans, LA
Grand Canyon (North Rim)
Houston, TX
San Antonio, TX
Cortez, CO

We will have brief stops (1/2 day or a few hours) in:
Nashville, TN
Las Cruces, NM

So - what I'd like from you is suggestions. If there was only one or two things we could do in each place- what should we do? What's your best restaurant suggestion? Beautiful spot to take pictures? Discount tips? Anything you can think of that would make our stop in each city memorable. We'd love to save money here and there, but aren't opposed to spending on something that is exceptional.

If you'd like to read about our last trip so you can get a feel for what we like as a family here are some links:

The Great State of Utah (Arches National Park) and Day 2

Kansas and Missouri






South Dakota & Mt. Rushmore

Yellowstone & Jackson Hole, WY

Road Trip Slide Show Recap

We do have some ideas and things in mind already of what we'd like to do at certain points along the way. So please don't take it personally if we don't end up using your suggestion. It may be a time restraint or some other logistic that keeps us from doing it.

And yes.... I will be blogging from the road again this year.

Thank you so much for your help and insights! We are so excited to see more of the U.S.

In the meantime, if you'd keep us in your prayers. I need to find someone to housesit and/or watch my two precious cats while we're gone and get ministry work done ahead of schedule.

Summer may seem like a long ways off but it will sneak up fast. :)
