  1. Default Never been out of Michigan:(

    Hello-
    My hubby & our 3 little children are taking a road trip to Florida to visit the Grandmother for the week after Christmas. I've never really been on a road trip and hardly been out of Michigan! We are planning on traveling through Kentucky & Tennessee on I-75 South. Then cross into Georgia on I-75 again and then head into Florida.
    My question is if anyone knows of places we could stop on the way for the kids. Not expensive & time consuming (like amusement parks) but nature parks and heritage/local events. Or just fun stuff.
    Any advice would be nice.
    Thanks!

    Family road trips are the best! Here are some time-tested tips for planning family road trips, here is guidebook to I-75 that you might find very, very helpful.

    Here are a couple of places to think about stopping. The Tippecanoe Frontier Trading Company is located in Tipp City -- it's a store, but it's chock-full of stuff you could have purchased in the late 1800's. Another really cool place is the Carillion Historical Park in Ohio -- they have lots of still-working historical machines and plenty of people to explain how everything works. The Newport Aquarium has a tunnel where visitors can walk through a shark feeding area.

    Hope this gets you started.
