Road Trip - Los Angeles to Kansas along I40

Jump to last reply

Longtime lurker here. Just found out a friend is planning a quick jaunt from Los Angeles to Kansas (Very quick - she is planning to try to do it in four days) but she has never done a road trip before or really had an opportunity to explore the states so I thought I'd turn to the wonderful experts here. I've found a few similar threads mostly going from Texas to California and sadly too many of these are taking the 10 to be helpful.

I've checked on freetrip.com for recommendations on a few scenic routes and I've bookmarked these threads to help generate a few possibilites and recommendations for her itinerary(mostly chowhound stuff for restaurants):

And this site which gives great recs on hitting route 66 in KS

Has anyone here done this route? Any suggestions on great stopping points either to see or just cool places to grab lodging? On the way back she will have a pet with her. Looking for any/all advice and Thanks very much in advance.
