Simply over the Tennessee line in Calhoun, Georgia, we found a retailer that sells over one hundred flavors of popcorn referred to as Popcorn Haven After we stopped, we tried the dark chocolate popcorn, the white cheddar popcorn, and the cola popcorn. I appreciated the cola popcorn the best as the flavour jogged my memory of the cola bottlecaps. My kids nonetheless, liked the chocolate popcorn. The popcorn was excellent and with over 97 different flavors to attempt, we will likely be stopping there again.
One question you must reply as a household is how long do you wish to drive per day, and it is a household question. Our family can deal with 5-8 hours of driving per day.

After we cease, we attempt to stop someplace we all know we will do something the subsequent morning earlier than driving once more. We do like to SEE AMERICA!
We have now had our moveable DVD participant for years and simply find it irresistible for lengthy journeys. If you do not have one in your car, there are many transportable models.

The screens hold from the back of the seats and supply a fantastic distraction on the lengthy trips.
Effectively, we stay in St. Aug, Florida and have plenty of favorite locations round here. It isn’t Orlando, but you cross us on your means!

It’s good as a result of there is a ferry boat journey out to the Fort and children LOVE that.
