Driving from San Diego, CA to Lansing, MI w/young kids

Jump to last reply

We are relocating from San Diego, CA to Lansing, MI. We have decided to drive and make it into a "vacation". We have about 6 days to make it to Lansing.

We will be leaving mid-June. We plan on taking the northern route...San Diego - Nevada - Utah- Colorado - Nebraska - Iowa - Illinois - (Indiana) - Michigan.

We are looking for places to stop with our two kids (7 & 2.5) along this route that would be fun for the whole family, like unique museums, parks, "world's largest" places, etc. We don't want to travel too far off the route, since we will be playing beat the moving truck. We have friends from Denver, CO and already have recommendations for that city.

Also, any hotel suggestions would be great as well.

Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

Thanks!
