Too bad your stuck up on 40.

Coming from Florida Big Bend NP in Texas on the Rio Grande is a great place to visit, then head up to Guadalupe NP and maybe a day trip to Carlsbad.

Then swing up to White Sands with the great military stuff around there and then you can head up to Albuquerque. On the way to the Grand Canyon head up through Santa Fe and catch Taos. Great Sand Dunes NP across the Colorado line is awesome then head back down by Ghost Ranch for some awesome scenery then over to Chaco for some great history and , then , head for the North Rim. All the Zions and Bryces are up there. If your ready to head back head south to Organ Pipe, Saguaro NP around Tucson. If you do that you could head in on 40 then catch white sands and the Texas parks on the way back to florida.

We did all that last fall from California in September and October. Got reservations in October for the North Rim. We got snowed out on the 15th of October but that was a 500 year snow.

Maybe this is more than you want to take, but coming that far, see it all if you can. Lots to see in Arizona and New Mexico. Beautiful state, especially northern NM.

Have fun.

New Mexico along I-40

If we have only one place to take visitors along I-40 in NM it is Acoma Pueblo. Sky City is the Acoma Pueblo's casino, right on I-40 and I cannot speak to RV facilities. But about 15 miles off I-40 is the actual Acoma Pueblo, known as "Sky City" because it is located on top of a mesa. Known as the oldest continuously inhabited "city" in North America, they offer tours and a museum. The Pueblo is still inhabited to this day and is very historic, and with the your you will get acquainted with a whole different culture. Reservations highly recommended, go to web site for many more details.
Another great stop is El Morro National Monument with historic Inscription Rock, not too far off I-40. Small campground with state of the art vault toilets, water available, and several pull-throughs. Free! Google it!

I believe the Hopi village of Old Oraibi is the oldest continuously occupied town in North America. All great places to visit. Donít overlook Canyon de Chelly, which has a nice small campground.

Free overnight in Amarillo

We have camped the night several times at the TX Welcome Station on I-40 on the east side of Amarillo. Itís a block off the interstate so is reasonably quiet with little passerby traffic. RV friendly, big lot, and very nice restrooms. There are usually several RVís and a couple of 18 wheelers there. The 18 wheelers have a separate parking area. No hookups. Just a nice free roomy concrete parking lot.
