Hi. First post here. Great site.
I'm trying to plan a road trip this summer. We live in Michigan. Previously we went to Gatlinburg, Smokey Mountains, North Carolina for a road trip and love it.
What might be a similar region that is a similar distance from Michigan?
Looking for something that has multiple things to do within a short distance (like Gatlinburg/Mountains/North Carolina). And is about 12-15 hours drive.
• St. Louis area might be ok. Not sure though if it is as memorable as the mountains though. Thoughts?
• Upstate New York might be ok. Not sure if there is enough to do.
I was thinking about driving out to the Grand Canyon or Yellowstone. But that might take a bit too long.
Any thoughts would be helpful. Just looking for some brainstorming ideas.
