This is my first time posting but have used this forum for a few years. We are planning our cross country trip from the Piedmont of NC to Yellowstone. I've done a lot of research and planning but would love feedback from more experienced travelers. We purchased our first travel trailer this past spring and intend on getting all we can from it. My husband and I are both educators which affords us the summers off. Our 2 kids are in elementary school.
We plan on being on the road for about 4 weeks, taking our time to enjoy our country. The tentative itinerary is as follows:
Leave NC to Lexington, KY to camp at the Kentucky Horse Park Campground (our kids love horses)
-Leave Kentucky and head to St. Louis West Koa (2 days to explore area and enjoy campground)
-St. Louis to camp at Wilson Island State Park (possible 2 days so that we may visit Henry Doorly Zoo) Along the way we may stop to see Walt Disney's childhood home.
-Wilson Island State Park to Badlands NP area (possibly stay at Mystery Mountain Resort)
-Badlands NP to Cody, WY (no lodging yet)
-Cody to Grant Village Campground (5days)
After this we MAY head to Miami for family gathering so...
We want to head towards Colorado and stay at Estes Park Center (can't make reservations until April😕)
My hubby would like to visit Houston TX.
We want good family friendly lodging and attractions. I am at a loss at this point, any recommendations?
