Tampa to Raliegh and back in a week
My husband, 9 year-old son and I need to go to Raliegh, NC for a one day family reunion. We would like to make it a whole week by just stopping at interesting and fun things along the way -- any ideas? My son loves sports and we are definately hitting Duke University in Durham when we arrive in the triangle area, but other than that, I need some ideas.
Sounds like a great idea!
Sounds like a perfect excuse for a road trip to me! Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum! I am guessing that you already know about some of the cool parks in Florida? But if you haven't been to Blue Springs SP up by St. Johns, it is a very fun place to walk around. And I am guessing that you have also checked out Discovery Cove near Orlando? I always wanted to go, but never could quite fit that in.

Just past the Florida/Georgia border you can wander around Fort King George -- built in 1721 -- some old cannons and other cool stuff there.
At exit 99 (on I-95) is another place I would go, if I was there -- the Roundhouse Railroad Museum.
I have always wanted to go canoeing on the Canoe and Kayak trail along the Edisto River -- you could easily spend a day or two here.
South of the Border -- need I say more?
I hope this gets you started!
