Sometimes you just don’t want to plan a trip, maybe your are feeling a little adventurous – perhaps the Thelma & Louise bug has bitten you.  Have you ever thought about packing the kids in the car and just setting out to see where the road might take you? This is a fantastic way to discover the country finding places you never knew existed or would normally have never chosen.  The kids will love the adventure part of this.  Here’s how it works.

For Instance: Road tripping South from Savannah, Georgia

Set off on your, let’s just say, a nature and history trip from Savannah, Georgia.  Roadtripper can tell you to stop first at Fort McAllister Historic State Park which has the best preserved earth-work fortification from the Civil War on the Ogeechee River.

From there the kids want to see Blackbeard Island National Wildlife Refuge, a beautiful beach and refuge where you can enjoy some down time and enjoy the preserved nature on the island.  From there you can look to see what hotels are close … maybe Sapelo Island Birdhouses, house vacation rentals might suit you just fine. They are right there near the beach.

Hofywl Broadfield Plantation

Hofywl Broadfield Plantation

 

Traveling down the coast, you might want to stop in at the Hofwyl-Broadfield Plantation Historic Site, a beautiful plantation on Georgia’s rice coast that was fully productive in the early 1800’s where you can learn about life and the economy in the deep south before the Civil War.

These are just a few out of the way places you might find along the way.  There is a lot of open highway out there. Find your starting point.  Iowa, Colorado, Tennessee… This just might be one of the most fun vacations you’ll ever have… just wandering around the country.
