  1. Default Road Trip: Knoxville-Toronto-NYC-DC-Knoxville

    I am planning to take a road trip at the end of June from Knoxville to Toronto and then from Toronto to Knoxville via NYC and DC (i.e. Knoxville-Toronto-NYC-DC-Knoxville). I wanted to get some suggestions on visiting some attractions (preferably, historical and/or natural and also something interesting to my 6-yr old kid) on the way.

    The following is my intended driving timeline (flexible):
    From Knoxville to Toronto ( driving in 2 days).
    From Toronto to NYC (driving in 2 day)
    From NYC to DC (driving in 1 day)
    From DC to Knoxville (driving in 2 day)

    I would greatly appreciate your comments and suggestions.

    Default Okay...

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Well, six year olds are notoriously fickle in their tastes, and not knowing even if yours is a daughter or son makes recommending something harder still, but here are some general thoughts on what some of the highlights along your trip are. Mammoth Cave National Park (KY), US Air Force Museum as well as Wright Brothers sites (Dayton OH), Greenfield Village (Dearborn MI). Niagara Falls, Letchworth State Park (NY), Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area (PA/NJ), Fort McHenry (Baltimore MD), Independence Mall (Philadelphia PA), US Naval Academy (Annapolis MD), the National Mall (Washington DC), Manassas National Battlefield Park (VA), Blue Ridge Parkway (VA). and Mount Rogers National Recreation Area (VA).

    I'd recommend going to Hersheypark in Hershey, PA. I think almost any 6-year-old would love it. It doesn't take two full days to go from Toronto to NYC, so you could drive to Hershey on the first day and then spend most of the day at the park the next before going to NYC, or you could stop by on the way from NYC to DC (a little less out of the way then, but the first option still isn't bad).

    Niagara Falls would also be very convenient for you to stop by.
