Need info on driving from Chicago to Tucson

Jump to last reply

We will be leaving Chicago to arrive in Tucson 2/1/09.We have rented a condo and will be staying there unil 3/15/09. Mapquest routes us on I55, I44, I40 and NM26 thru St. Louis, Springfield, Oklahoma City, Amarillo, Albuquerque and down to Tucson passing near El Paso.

We need info on possible weather related problems getting to Tucson, which might be avoided by changing our route, and points of interest when we drive home in mid March.We want to take the fastest way going there and do our sight seeing when we leave Tucson . Being newly retired we have no time restrictions.

We would be happy to deviate from this route to see sights along the way. We love historical areas, hiking, beautiful scenery and any festival or something unique to the areas we will be driving near.Since we live in a large city, aquariums, zoos , shopping centers, art museums do not excite us unless there is something special that we can not see at home.

Looking forward to your help
