On our second journey to Orlando, we drove from Naperville, Illinois. The yr before we flew on United Airways and this yr we flew on Southwest. This page depicts our driving journey, some issues we noticed alongside the best way, somes tools we used to get from Naperville to Orlando, and my typical ramblings alongside the best way.
The next day, we are off to the Elijah Mountain Gem Mine near Asheville, North Carolina. If you’ve never been Gem Mining, here’s the idea, you get a bucket of grime and using water, you wash all of the dirt off and what is left ought to be, rocks and gems and things. You never know what your going to get and typically you get nothing. So, when you do not need to get nothing, then you go to Elijah’s, where they’ve premade buckets with gems already in them. In addition they have buckets with Indian Artifacts and Fossils. Not likely prospecting here, but the children have a whole lot of fun because the sand sifts away and they see multi-colored gemstones. This cease was a few miles off of the expressway into Asheville. Other gem mines are off the overwhelmed path a methods, so it relies on how a lot time it’s important to get to your subsequent destination.
We love caves. This 12 months on the way dwelling from Orlanda, Florida we stopped in Chattanooga, Tennessee at Ruby Falls. Ruby Falls is a waterfall that’s below the mountain. The only option to get to it is by taking an elevator 200 feet beneath the earth and walking about 2/5 of a mile to the water fall. In fact, that is all part of a tour that takes you there.
Now we have visited three parks in Disney World and never have stayed on website. The three parks we visite have been Magic Kingdom in 2008, Animal Kingdom in 2009, and Hollywood Studios in 2010. Being animal individuals, I would have to say Animal Kingdom is our second favourite attraction in Orlando, Florida, with Hollywood Studios being our second favourite park.
As we journey, we are all the time on the lookout for one thing unique that you don’t find at each exit of the freeway. Just over the Tennessee line in Calhoun, Georgia, we found a retailer that sells over one hundred flavors of popcorn known as Popcorn Haven Once we stopped, we tried the darkish chocolate popcorn, the white cheddar popcorn, and the cola popcorn. I favored the cola popcorn the perfect as the flavour reminded me of the cola bottlecaps. My children nonetheless, appreciated the chocolate popcorn. The popcorn was excellent and with over 97 different flavors to strive, we might be stopping there once more.
