Going down for a five day weekend over Columbus Day. Plan to leave after school Wednesday and would like to drive 5-6 hours and stop for the night so we'd only have 4-5 hours the next day. Can't figure out where to stop.
What I'm hoping to do is book someplace cheap on Priceline or Hotwire because I figure I can get a good rate on a Wednesday night in October, but I don't want to wind up too far off the hwy or into Cincinnati (great town, but like I said, want to be right off the hwy).
Anyone taken this trip that has a recommendation? Or, mapquest Crystal Lake, Illinois, 60014 to Gatlinburg and find me a town to concentrate on-I guess what I need is an atlas, not Mapquest!
