  1. Default Road trip with kids from ST. Louis, MO to Raleigh, NC

    Hi everyone - I am new to this awesome site. I have been lurking around and reading but wanted any extra advice on a road trip from St. Louis, MO to Raleigh, NC and back. Any must see places along the way? Any certain places to AVOID? Where would be a place to stop for the night since we will be breaking the trip into 2 days. Thanks in advance!!

    Default Two Possibilities

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    The first thing that I'd suggest is that you plan on taking different routes each way so as to maximize the 'newness' of the trip. One route would revolve around using I-64 to West Virginia, I-77 down to North Carolina and then US-52/I-40 to Raleigh. Highlights of this route might be some of the horse farms around Lexington KY, the New River Gorge in West Virginia, Mount Airy ('Mayberry') NC. Midway would be roughly Ashland KY, although you can shift your overnight a bit east or west depending on where and how long you plan to stop on this leg.

    An alternative would be to take I-24 down to Nashville and I-40 east from there. Possible highlights include the Land Between the Lakes in Kentucky, Nashville and Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Halfway is approximately Crossville TN. You can. of course, take either route in wither direction.
