What’s the best route from Wisconsin to Colorado?
I have to go to a wedding in Colorado this summer, and I hate flying. I’d like to make a road trip out of it with a few overnights. What’s the best route from Wisconsin to Colorado?
Answer provided by
The best route from Wisconsin to Colorado is about 1,091 miles long and takes 17 hours of driving. Here’s the route we recommend:
- Take US-151 S to Dubuque
- Take US-30 W to IA-330 S to I-80 W/US-65 S in Altoona
- Follow I-80 W and I-76 W to US-285 S/US Hwy 285 S in Jefferson County
- Take exit 5A from CO-470
You’ll be spending a lot of time driving through Iowa and Nebraska. Although these midwestern states aren’t popular destinations, there’s still plenty to see and do along the way at great tourist attractions like:
- Grandad Bluff in La Crosse, WI
- Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden in Des Moines, IA
- Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium in Omaha, NE
- Nebraska State Capitol in Lincoln, NE
- Great Platte River Road Archway Monument in Kearney, NE
- Estes Park in Estes Park, CO
