Arizona to Ontario

Driving my parent's coach home (with the kids) from Arizona next month.
Any suggested stops?
We plan on doing Slide Rock, Grand Canyon, Meteor Crater and the Petrefied Forest on our way out of Arizona
Maybe Meremac Caverns near St. Louis.
Thanks.

Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village in Dearborn MI. Went many years ago and have never forgotten. Really want to get back there. Upstate MI is also really nice. Loved Macinac and the Macinac Island. I would provide links but for some reason this particular forum section isn't allowing it.

Which part of Ontario are you headed to? Ontario is a very large province and it would make a big difference on which route to take and what to see.

I guess I should have included that.
We will likely cross at Sarnia / Port Huron or Windsor / Detroit.
Ideally looking for a stop in New Mexico, Texas panhandle or Oklahoma.

Suggest that you cross at Sarnia/Port Huron. Still lots of construction, detours, etc. that would impact if crossing at Windsor/Detroit.

Assume you are taking I-40/I-44 across to St. Louis. Old Town and Sandia tramway in Albuquerque are potential stops. Palo Duro Canyon out of Amarillo is good, Cowboy Hall of Fame and Museum and the National Monument in Oklahoma City are potential stops. Precious Moments museum and factory, plus civil war monuments at Carthage Missouri are very nice. Springfield Mo has the largest Bass Pro shop. South of Springfield is Branson and Silver Dollar City. The Gateway Arch in St. Louis is very good. Depending on where you head north, you could go through Elkhart Indiana and see considerable Amish settlements, stores, farms, etc and in Elkhart there is the National RV Museum and hall of Fame.

I would suggest the Port Huron crossing. Last fall it was very easy crossing into Canada.

Enjoy the trip

The Road Trip from Arizona to Ontario is much longer and it includes many places in between like Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Newfoundland, Northwest Territory, Nova Scotia, Ontario and you can make the stop anywhere among these places.
