  1. Default Chicago to Hilton Head

    Family of 6 (12, 10, 8, 6) traveling from Chicago to Hilton Head. We typically fly to Hilton Head, but this year decided to be adventurous and drive! Thinking of stopping in Gatlinburg, TN for 2 nights before heading to Hilton Head. Any tips or suggestions for this drive? What are the "Must see or do" in Gatlinburg?

    Default Shouldn't be a Problem

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Gatlinburg is a family-oriented tourist town, so you should have no problems keeping the kids entertained for 2-3 days. Besides the well-known Dollywood amusement park, there are go-cart tracks, mountain biking trails, horseback riding, whitewater rafting, laser tag, bumper cars, rope courses, ziplines, ghost tours, etc. Finding stuff is not the problem, choosing is, and that will be up to you and yours.

    Since Day 1, getting to Gatlinburg, involves a nearly 600 mile drive I won't recommend any stops on that leg, but on the final leg to Hilton Head, you only need to cover about 400 miles leaving you a few hours for a stop at one of our lesser-known, but unique, national parks.
