    Default Trying to start planning our first family road trip & need advice

    We are thinking about a road trip, a week or just over a week, starting from our home state of VA. We have a 7 & 9 year old. Any suggestions on a route? We can't decide North, toward NY, South to Florida, or West. All seasoned road trippers welcome to hand out advice. :)

    Welcome aboard RTA!

    First piece of advice: Either play around in the Map Center here on RTA, or get a good paper map of the eastern US. Spread out the latter and see what jumps out at you.

    With children that age, you could go any direction, but with just a week, you might want to limit how far you go. There are things to do and see no matter which direction you go.

    One thought that jumped out at me was PENNSYLVANIA -- lots to do in that state that would interest all different ages -- something for everyone.

    Would have to second all that Donna said. And yeah! I too would check out Pennsylvania. I could spend a month in that State, and there would still be more ground to explore. Seems like every road leads one to yet another surprise.

    South! Your kids must spend time at Disney.
