Family Vacation

On our second trip to Orlando, we drove from Naperville, Illinois. The yr before we flew on United Airlines and this year we flew on Southwest. This web page depicts our driving trip, some issues we saw alongside the way, somes tools we used to get from Naperville to Orlando, and my typical ramblings alongside the best way.

We now have had our transportable DVD participant for years and just love it for long journeys. If you do not have one in your car, there are a lot of transportable fashions. We’ve got four youngsters so a dual display screen system to permit everybody in the van to see the film is a must. The screens dangle from the again of the seats and provide a terrific distraction on the lengthy journeys.

We love caves. This yr on the way in which residence from Orlanda, Florida we stopped in Chattanooga, Tennessee at Ruby Falls. Ruby Falls is a waterfall that’s under the mountain. The only solution to get to it is by taking an elevator 200 toes under the earth and walking about 2/5 of a mile to the water fall. After all, this is all part of a tour that takes you there.

As we journey, we’re all the time in search of one thing distinctive that you do not find at every exit of the highway. Simply over the Tennessee line in Calhoun, Georgia, we discovered a store that sells over 100 flavors of popcorn referred to as Popcorn Haven Once we stopped, we tried the darkish chocolate popcorn, the white cheddar popcorn, and the cola popcorn. I liked the cola popcorn the perfect as the flavor jogged my memory of the cola bottlecaps. My children however, favored the chocolate popcorn. The popcorn was wonderful and with over 97 other flavors to attempt, we can be stopping there again.

Metropolis, Illinois is located on the Ohio river on Interstate 24 just north of Paducah, Kentucky. Metropolis has a on line casino and not too far is Fort Massac. If I were the Metropolis chamber of commerce, I might look to have a statue of each super hero and a store for each super hero. Who would not want to go to the Marvel Women store, or a retailer devoted to Aquaman, Batman and Robin, or the Inexperienced Lantern.
