I am a newbie and a recent immigrant to the US. I am planning to take a road trip from Chicago to Orlanda, Florida (I heard Disney world is great) during Christmas time (get away from cold and snow for a little while). Here is what I have planned.
Take time off (7 days). Drive to and back in the 7 days.
2 days each way for driving. Catch up on some of the national parks en route.
I am taking a rental car (SUV). My travel companions are my wife and 6 year old child. Wife can drive. So expect to share driving time with her.
Since the distance is 1250 miles one way. I would like your suggestions from the veterans to make the trip more enjoyable, pleasant and safer.
Thanks in advance.
