The best driving route from New Jersey to Colorado is via I-70 W. The trip typically takes ** 26 to 30 hours** of driving, depending on your exact departure and arrival points.
Round trip, this would cost you about $578.49 in gas, plus the cost of the hotels that you would have to stay in along the way. On average, you’ll pay about $700 round trip for flights to and from Colorado, so flying would likely be much cheaper.
If you’d like to see the terrain, however, there’s nothing quite like a road trip. It’s just not always the right choice for the sake of price alone!
