  1. Default Ideas for road trip from Chicago over spring break

    I am looking for ideas to take my family of three (11-year old son) on a road trip from Chicago over March 25-April 2 spring break. Preferences are:

    1. One way mileage less than 700 miles.
    2. Destination somewhat warmer than Chicago.
    3. Things to keep 5th grader entertained.
    4. Proximity to nature preserve, park, etc.

    All suggestions are wlecome. Thanks in advance.

    - Dante

    Default How about Kentucky?

    Mammoth Caves, Corvette Museum, Lost River Caverns and other caverns along the interstates.

    Your Perameters:

    1) Less than 700 miles one way - yes

    2) Somewhat warmer - maybe (I'm from Louisiana - everything seems cold to me above south Arkansas)

    3) Things to keep 5th grader entertained - perhaps - do the above mentioned things interest him?

    4) Proximity to nature preserve, park, etc - does Mammoth count?

  3. Default

    lhuff,

    Thanks for your suggestion. Mammoth caves and the caverns are a great idea. The drive is definitely doable and the scenery should be good. I will look up the temperature averages.
