We are planning trip to New Mexico in March w/teens. Kids want to see/stop at Roswell, NM and now husband and kids really want to see Meteor Crater in Arizona. We have 8 days and can fly into/out of either ABQ or Phoenix, AZ and will have a car. My husband strongly prefers to drive on interstate highways or 4 lane divided roads. He does not like to drive roads where there is only one lane in each direction (if he can help it), though for short stretches he would be fine with it.
We would also like to see White Sands and/or Carlsbad Caverns, (in addition to the Meteor Crater)and Tent Rocks sounds great also, but I don't know if it is realistic to fit all these places in. Ideally we could stay at a hotel 2 -3 days and do day trips, rather than go from hotel to hotel each day. Any suggestions on how to do this (if feasible) would be much appreciated. We like nature and science and some history.
Thank you so much in advance!
