We need to make a quick trip to Phoenix from MI in two weeks. We will be traveling 55 to I-44 to I-40.

Due to other factors we will have 4 days to drive there and another 4 to come back after the visit and won’t be able to take the TT. If it was a different time of year I’d take the northern route back home and add a lot of time.

Have planned to visit some normal and not so normal spots and am looking for more quick visit suggestions as we don’t think we’ll get back this way soon. We will see Galena, KS (Tow Mater from movie Cars), Federal Memorial in Oklahoma City, Tucumcari NM, Old Town in Albuquerque, Petrified Forest, Meteor Crater, and Cadillac Ranch.

We’ve already been through IL and MO several times so they are not in the agenda.

Sorry this was so long and thanks for the suggestions.

Palo Duro Canyon is just South of I-40 near Amarilo, TX. In Albuquerque visit Petroglyph National Monument and the Pueblo Cultural Center. Acoma Sky City is the oldest continuously occupied settlement in the United States. There are several interesting places to visit near Grants, NM including inscription rock at El Moro National Monument. There are several places to visit in the Flagstaff area with Sunset Crater, Wupatki, and Walnut Canyon National Monuments being the closest.

There are many more interesting places along your route then you will be able to see in such a short time so you will have to choose those that interest you the most.


Safe travels!

trailertraveler thanks. I've been in some of the cities back when I worked but DW and I are trying to put together some slow time for ourselves. I will try to add some of your suggestions.

Crabbin cabin, my son now lives in Gilbert and we will also be going through Payson to get my grand-daughter. For three days we will be up in Lake Havasau City with a SIL.

Thanks for the suggestions and I'll try to put in as much as we can. Almost wanted to stay in Holbrook in a Teepee but passed.

Thanks again.

Where in the Phoenix area are you headed? If eastern areas (Tempe/Mesa/ Apache Junction) turn off I40 at Holbrook and head for Payson then south to Mesa and ....
