Good one day mid-point stop btw Colorado Springs and Dallas?

Jump to last reply

With the current route I have mapped out we will be passing through Oklahoma City but will probably want to stop before that possibly somewhere off 412 or 270. We like natural wonders of nature, active/adventurous outings, wacky road side attractions and things that are outside and cheap/free. Small towns are fine.

Is Woodward nice or just make a longer trek the first day to stop in Oklahoma City?

I would also be open to an alternative route from Colorado Springs to Dallas that takes us through Kansas without going too far out of the way.

Any town, lodging, food and attraction recommendations along this route? For meals we like to explore the local cuisines. We like mom and pop, one of a kind type of place. For lodging, we are more interested in the scenery outside than the decor of the room or amenities offered.

Thanks in advance!
