    Default Winter trip ideas from chicago to florida in Dec

    Hi,
    we want to plan for a road trip from Chicago during christmas holidays with friends and family. We have 10-12 days...want to get away from winter during this time so looks like my options would be pretty much limited. We have kids from all ages in the group.
    One good option I thought would be to drive to Florida? any other ideas? If we plan for Florida, how should we plan for our trip, any attractions, parks etc. that we can see on the way. We have done quite a bit of drving around but it was not with a group and was mostly unplanned.

    thanks for your time and assistance.

    cheers

    Default Not So Limited

    Not at all. With 10-12 days, you can get pretty much everywhere east of the Rockies relatively easily, assuming two days to drive 'there', 6-8 days there and 2 days to drive back. Florida is certainly an option and a visit to the theme parks of Orlando and/or the beaches would be an easy sell to the kids, but also within reach are the Texas Gulf coast, Creole Louisiana and New Orleans, the Gulf Islands National Seashore, Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge and Cumberland Island National Seashore in Georgia, Charleston and/or the Grand Strand in South Carolina, the Outer Banks of North Carolina, and a host of other kid-friendly destinations. At this point, rather than asking us for ideas, your best bet would be to open up the discussion of possible destinations to those who will be taking the trip and see what they want to do. They might surprise you.
