family road trip from Illinois to New Mexico/Colorado

Jump to last reply

Hi, I am planing a trip for June 30 with my family. Three kids 9, 7, and 4 and the hubby. We will be leaving from Peoria, IL. We have two weeks and plan to drive to Santa Fe, New Mexico for our first part of the trip. I know we will have to stop at least once on our way to Santa Fe. I have a lot of ideas on where we will go in that area. Bandelier, Taos, Madrid, Albuquerque, Capulin Volcano, any some others. I am thinking after eight days (Checking out from the Inn of the Governors on July 9) we will drive up to Durango, CO and do the train ride. This is where I need help. We will have to rest of our second week to travel around and I'm not sure where to go after Durango. My return home route brings me home through Denver and across Nebraska and Iowa. I am having a little more difficulty finding things to do in these areas. We don't want to do zoo's and museums. Kids get bored with that stuff. We want to site see and experience to beauty of the west. Any ideas or suggestions would be really great. This is the farthest we've traveled with the kids and the most time. We went to South Dakota a few years ago for a week. A week is easy to plan. South Dakota was great by the way!! Thanks a lot for any help or input:)

Kathy
