My wife, two daughters (age 10 and 12), and I are taking a vacation in the late summer of this year. We are leaving south Louisiana heading straight up the U.S to Chicago then heading east toward the coast. We plan on driving down the east coast to Destin, FL then head back home to Houma, LA. We will have 18 days to do this and we are traveling in our own vehicle so we will be staying in hotels along the way. Our initial plans were to have key stops. We decided on Branson, MO then Chicago. From Chicago to Niagara Falls, NY or Canada. From there to New York City to Washington DC. We thought about Colonial Williamsburg. After that maybe Myrtle beach, SC before Destin. If anyone has any thoughts about our vacation or if anyone thinks of a new stop along our trip, please give us your input. Each stop we make we are planning on staying 1-2 days maximum. Please keep this in mind when offering suggestions. If you live in or visited any of these cities and would like to share your opinions on clean places to stay, attractions we may want to see, or restaurants we must eat at, please give us your opinion. We will try to stay away from the amusement parks and visit educational and scenic areas. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
