We leave 9-22 heading to Utah for the Mighty 5 loop then on to Sedona.
Starting in Page & allowing 24 days doing the loop before heading to Sedona (reservations made). I have allowed 2 extra days for the drive from Bristol, Va to Page, AZ. Assuming all goes well and we make good time, is there any "must see/do" along I-40? It would be nice to have a break along the way.

One thing in Sedona is "Slide Rock". Especially nice if you have children. Staying high, up near Flagstaff will help, if you can find a place up there. But, it's going to be hot, hot, hot everywhere else in Arizona (115*+). Page Arizona is one looonely drive.

The only thing that I can think of---Keep checking your rear mirrors.

You may want to look at some of the Route 66 historical points. Much of it is along I-40

On I 40/Rt 66 is the little historic town of Williams, Az. Among other things there have an old fashion train that takes you to the Grand Canyon and back. There are a few campgrounds in the area. Fun place to park it and just walk around.

Now that's funny. Anywho, in Amarillo there is the Big Texas Steak House that if you stay anywhere near Amarillo its a must go and have a steak. Palo Duro Canyon is a nice overnight spot. New Mexico there is the Meteor Crater and petrified forest and a lot of open beautiful country. Some Native American shops to get some pottery or other neat things.

Oh, Nashville there is the Hermitage. Andrew Jacksons home and museum. Be aware though Nashville is a big Covid 19 hot spot. Check to see if the museum is even open. Have patience going through Memphis, it will feel like it takes forever.

Of course there is the Grand Canyon NP in AZ and on to Page and Lake Powell

Lots of Rt 66 stuff. At Shamrock TX there's an old restored art deco Conoco service station. Santa Rosa NM has Blue Hole (might be closed at the moment). Midpoint Cafe at Adrian TX. Out front the have the half way route 66 sign people use for photo ops. Lots of other stuff but I'm drawing a blank.

We're museum people, and always enjoy the National Cowboy & Western Museum in Oklahoma City.

Amarillo has a very nice RV park, with limo ride to Big Texan Steakhous

Bandera, TX, south of I-40, but not much is the Cowboy Capital of the World (Old Bandera Pass Cattle drive)

Fredericksburg, TX.. German town and Military Museum (if open)

I-40 has a big area, 7 Stations of the Cross which is very nice to see.. big RV parking area

Understand NM is not letting people in unless you are a NM resident if you are going that far.
