Well I decided to do a road trip and not fly. I'll be driving from SW Michigan to Columbia, MO and was just wondering if anybody has any suggestions on maybe some stops along the way?

I'll basically be taking I-94W down to I-55 through St. Louis and then I-70 to Columbia.

Anything to do/see or should I just expect to stop in St. Louis?

When I plan my holidays in the US I always check out RoadsideAmerica for off the wall sights.

Thanks for the advice everybody! I found a city right on the Mississippi river called Louisiana, it looked pretty cool. I'll probably make a stop there for breakfast. Most of my drive to Missouri is going to be in the dead of night, the drive home I'm going to go through St. Louis. I also realize the trip I'm going on is actually the old route66 so I'm sure I'll see things along the way.

When will you be coming? If you like wine (and are of age) there is a charming town just a bit off I-70 called Hermann. It was settled by Germans and has a lot of neat architecture.It is right on the Missouri river, and is in the heart of Missouri wine country. Several wineries make it their home and sometimes they have festivals in addition to the usual tours and tastings. Good German food, too!

I just "discovered" this map. You can set up for top 5,20, 50, 100 etc. Click on "turn photos on" and you can see what is there
