We are driving from Chicago to Atlanta and back in mid October. Total estimated distance is about 750 miles each way.
I am looking for suggestions regarding towns where we can stop for the night. Our preferences are that the town be very close to I-65 and roughly at the mid-point of the driving distance. We will have a fifth grader with us; I was thinking of stopping near the Mammoth Caves on the return leg when we will have a little more time but don't know much about the park or whether it is even close to I-65.
We will stay at a Courtyard by Marriott or similar Marriott property for the stopovers.
Thanks in advance - this is my first post.
