What's the best route from Denver to Seattle?

I’ve never visited Seattle before, but I’ve recently placed it at the top of my list. I love road-tripping rather than flying, so that’s how I’m going to get there. What’s the best driving route between Denver and Seattle?

Covering 1,300 miles and 20 hours, the trip from Denver to Seattle is lengthy, but you should certainly chop it up into at least three days to err on the side of caution. Here’s the best route from Denver to Seattle:
  • Take I-25 North out of Denver.
  • Take exit 271 for US-287.
  • Hop on I-80 West.
  • Take exit 168 for I-84 West.
  • Head north on I-15.
  • Stay right to get on I-84 West.
  • Take exit 179 for I-82 West.
  • Continue onto I-90 West all the way into Seattle.
