Cross country quick trip - west to east

Jump to last reply

Driving daughter, 2 of her friends, and 1 of mine to keep sane, to college in Virginia. Leaving Los Angeles on July 4th and taking route 40. Trying to find good places to make quickie stops that are fun, even if it's for a quick kodak moment. Our first stop is the Grand Canyon (only 1-2 hour stop), stopping somewhere in New Mexico. The next stop is Graceland.

Not looking for musuems or tours. This is a short 5 day trip.

So I'm looking for :
- places to see fireworks in New Mexico before Alburquerque
- Fun landmarks, pic places
- Good eats
- A good place between New Mexico and Graceland

Any ideas out there???!!!!! Thanks!!!!
