  1. Default Chicago to Hilton Head Island, SC

    We are traveling by car from Chicago to Hilton Head Island, SC and looking for fun things to do and see along the way. We have an 18 month old but also a 10, 12 and 16 year old. Any ideas?

    Default Time is the Critical Variable

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    What you can see depends largely on how much time you have to spend on the transit. If you are going to try to make the drive in two days, then you really only have time for minimal food, fuel and bathroom breaks and maybe one 'time-out' a day where you can pull up at a state park near the highway and let the kids get a half hour or so of exercise. If you can add a third day, then you have time to take slight detours to two of the great national parks of the eastern U.S., Mammoth Cave and Great Smoky Mountain. With more time, of course, you could do more.

  3. Default Time is flexible

    We are trying to plan side trips on the way back so it is flexible based on what there is to see. Any other ideas on wothwhile things to see along the way - even a little out of the way?

    Default A Little Bit of Everything

    Well, on a drive back that included both of the major National parks I mentioned in my previous post, you could also easily include Cowpens National Battlefield, the American Museum of Science and Energy, Cumberland Gap, the Falls of the Ohio, and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Hall of Fame Museum.
