Road Trip Suggestions - Devils Tower Wyoming to Boulder CO
Hi All! I would love to have some input. My brother and Dad are about to embark on a semi-cross country road trip starting in NYC and ending in Wichita, KS (with many stops along the way).
Any suggestions for the eighth leg of their trip from Devils Tower Wyoming to Boulder CO ? They are open to anything. They are traveling by way of US 14 to US 16 to US 85 to US 87S.
They are adventurous eaters who like local mom & pop places and regional foods.
The next leg of the trip is from Boulder CO to Denver CO (he's thinking of relocating) so if you have suggestions for that keep an eye out for the post on that board :) Thanks so much!!
As I mentioned in the original post my brother is considering relocating from NYC to the Boulder area and decided to take a detour to visit the area on the way to Wichita. He has never been there before and I volunteered to try and find him some interesting local spots along the way.
I hope their food expectations are modest. Newcastle, Redbird and Lusk, Wyoming, are not known for thei cuisine. Even Cheyenne, WY's largest city, doesn't offer too much. The restaurant in the Plains Hotel is pretty and has decent food. From there, it's just an hour or so to Fort Collins and from there, less than an hour to Longmont, which is NE of Boulder. US 87 is actually also Interstate 25 -- 4-lane, limited access and lots of truck traffic. Th, right off Exit 254e most iconic place right off the freeway is a truck stop called Johnson's Corner. Originally out in the country, it is now surrounded by rapid suburbanization. To fit into better to the squeaky clean surroundings, J.C. has been cleaned up, renovated and lost a lot of funkiness. It's famous for its gut-busting cinnamon rolls.
