Things to do and see on this certain route from Alabama to Colorado
This is the route John and I took.
Instead of making this post all about what I did. I want to show you the things that you can do along the route instead.
There is the Glen Allen Natural Bridge. It is not a far walk from the visitors center! The whole trail itself is about a mile. Great trail for beginners. (You can find my blog Post on the Natural Bridge, HERE.)
We didn’t make any memorial stops in Mississippi, although there are places to stop along the way.
No stops in Tennessee either as we went through a small portion of Memphis. The part we went through looked a little sketchy so we just went on through on the way there and on the way back.
We stopped at an overlook on the way to Colorado and on the way back we wanted to stop at the Hot Springs, but there is so much to do and it is a national park, so we decided to wait to come back so we could spend more time. So definitely check out the HOT SPRINGS!
We stopped at a part of Route 66.
Texas I became obsessed with the windmills. We really don’t have them in Alabama. So John and I stopped to explore them! Definitely check out the windmills, if you are into that sort of thing.
Stop everywhere here. Haha. NM is so beautiful! The extinct volcanoes are so cool. We loved the rest stop that we stopped at. We also stopped at Clayton Lake Park, this is a rv campground as well. We didn’t stay too long because it was so hot. You do have to pay for a day permit even if you are not staying overnight. There are bathrooms and showers available.
We didn’t stay in Colorado long at all, as I got sick and that’s why the trip ended pretty abruptly. CO is a beautiful state and I highly suggest it. We sort of zipped through the Garden of the Gods.
Places we stayed the night and ate at along the trip:
Sierra Grande Restaurant
Country Inn & Suites in Oklahoma City.
