My wife and I will be celebrating out 5th wedding anniversary this year. Now we know how people get to their 50th together because with kids, work, and all that we both thought we were married for only 3 years!!!
Anyway, we live in Chicagoland, and we love to drive together. It's relaxing and we seem able to tune into each other within the 1st couple of hours of a trip. So, we're leaving the kids with the parents and hitting the road for 6 - 7 days from 7/1 - 7/7. The only question is which direction do we point the car???
We'll probably drive 5 -6 hours per day for 3 days and then turn around and go home so we're stuck in IL and surrounding states. Since we're from IL we want to see something other than flat land & corn fields. We want beautiful and varied landscape, simple food, and only each other's company. Any suggestions would be welcome.
