We're planning a 2-week road trip from Sunnyvale, California to Norman, Oklahoma then Ames, Iowa. My sister and I will be driving with my children in tow (19 and 11 y.o.) Our start date is flexible but we need to be in Iowa at the latest Friday, the 8th of August. We have to stop in Oklahoma for business which requires at most 3-5 hours. There is nothing really a "Must see" on this road trip for us except visiting my daughter at Iowa State and going to the Iowa State Fair which my youngest daughter did her state report on and couldn't wait to try all those fried foods on sticks :) We would love to see as many "Nice to see" as we can on this trip but concern about the lack of time to add more destinations to the itinerary.
Do you think this is doable in 2 week time? If I'm able to add 2 more days to our trip, could we visit our brother in Granite Falls, Texas for a day before driving home? We each can drive 5-6 hours per day at most and our favorite activities when traveling are finding good eats and visiting historical towns or scenic areas.
This will be our very first multi-state road trip so I'm very grateful for any tip/suggestion. If there are "Must See" or "Nice to See" you can recommend, please do. Thank you.
