  1. Default Chicago to Smoky Mountains

    Doing a road trip this summer from Chicago to Smoky Mountains. Traveling with 2 young kids and the ILs down I65 through IN, then through KY and Knoxville, TN.

    On the way there we are stopping in Louisville and Corbin KY but I need ideas on where to stop on the way back. Should we loop around and take another route? Is it worth stopping at Cumberland Falls in Corbin on the way back? I need ideas!!


  2. Default

    So looking at a map, maybe we could go back via Lexington, KY and Cincinatti, OH then cut across to Indianapolis and shoot back to Chicago. Any suggestions of interesting stops near either of those cities?

    Default A Different Alternative

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    If, on your return, you first head west from Great Smoky Mountain National Park by using TN-297 to cross from I-75 to US-127 and then use KY-90 across southern Kentucky, you can have a very scenic drive that includes Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area, Mammoth Cave, Fort Knox, the Falls of the Ohio, and Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge.

    My apologies for bumping...wasn't trying to be rude :(.
