Just planning a road trip to visit some of the places I visited as a child, as well as some places my husbands family lived, starting north of Detroit with family, ending in Houston with family.
My kids are nearly 5 (girl) and nearly 10 (boy) - so with me and my hubby that will be 4 of us. All they have ever seen of the US is desert (my dad lives in Arizona!), so this will be a real eye opener for them.
My initial thought is for a longer day driving first day - Detroit to Mammoth Caves, other places we want to see are Smoky Mountains/Knoxville, Decatur AL and Pensacola FL, somewhere on the gulf coast, maybe New Orleans (but not essential). Mix of mostly wildlife and natural stuff really as we will have time in the cities to do museums and zoos etc... Planning up to 8 days from mid July.... This will be a once in a lifetime for us as a family, budgeting important but if its really worth a visit then we can be a bit flexible!!
Any thoughts, ideas gratefully received
