Hello! I am looking for advice on a route and/or attractions for a road trip from Sarasota,Florida to Ludington (north of Grand Rapids), MI. We will be traveling with our 5 children aged 1.5 years to 9 years old. We made this trip last summer, attempting to drive mostly overnight when the kids were asleep, but we were exhausted when we got to MI. We were think of traveling early in the day and making stops at attractions or getting into the hotel early enough for a swim. We usually stay at the Hampton Inn because they do not charge additionally for the children and the rooms are clean. We also need wifi because I am in school and need access to the internet.
Does anyone have advice on the best route? Are there any attractions that would be worth stopping for? The kids are all nature lovers, but also enjoy amusement parks and museums.
Thanks in advance!
