Ne to Mi on I-80 in June

I know less than nothing about the Midwest.

We've got a week to go from Denver, Co to Holly, Mi in a 36' Class A. My wife has her 50th High School reunion so arriving in Holly before the 6th is mandatory. We're planning on using the I-80 based on nothing more than Google Maps recommendation.

Other than watching some cornfields blur passed the side windows I haven't a clue what to see or do on the way.

Can anyone less ignorant than I am offer some insights, please?

About the only thing of interest on I-80 I know of is west of NE.

However why not take I-94? it runs all the way to I-75 in Detroit and you can turn left there (Actually you exit to the right)

or you can take 275 north to I-696 east to I-75 and completly avoid Detroit (You do get into the neighborhood but not the city, may save a few miles that way too)

YOU will find construction,, but I would epect that on either route

What you will NOT find on I-94 is toll booths.

(Have driven 94 from Chicago (or actually west of it) to the east end of it more than once)

On the way back home... Stop into Dearborn MI and the Henry Ford museum and Greenfield Village.. A museum of American Life and technology,, Very interesting.

Yankee Air Force in Ypsilanti (Willow Run Airport) call first,, Not as good as it was before the fire but still interesting..

There is an Air Musueam off I-94 in Kalamazoo as well.

Tour with Tony the Tiger if Kelloggs still does that in Battle Creek.

In June/july the Cascades in Jackson.

All off I--94

Home is where I park it!

If you decide to take I-80, the RV Museum in Elkhart is quite interesting. Lots of vintage rv's. Depending on what month the 6th is in, you may not even get to see them cornfields.

Having driven I-80 and I-70 many, many times, I'd suggest I-70 to Indianapolis, then N on I-69. I-80 has to go through the Greater Chicago area, tolls, traffic 24/7, and most likely orange barrels. If my wife didn't have roots and relatives in the Chicago area, I'd never put it high on my list of places to drive my RV or a car. I've spent hours sitting in traffic jams in the Chicago area. Even jumping down to alternates is bad because everyone else does too.
