Family Vacation

On our second journey to Orlando, we drove from Naperville, Illinois. The yr before we flew on United Airlines and this year we flew on Southwest. This page depicts our driving journey, some things we noticed alongside the best way, somes instruments we used to get from Naperville to Orlando, and my ordinary ramblings alongside the way in which.

As we travel, we’re at all times looking for one thing unique that you do not discover at every exit of the highway. Simply over the Tennessee line in Calhoun, Georgia, we found a retailer that sells over 100 flavors of popcorn known as Popcorn Haven After we stopped, we tried the dark chocolate popcorn, the white cheddar popcorn, and the cola popcorn. I favored the cola popcorn the best as the flavour jogged my memory of the cola bottlecaps. My children nevertheless, preferred the chocolate popcorn. The popcorn was glorious and with over 97 other flavors to attempt, we shall be stopping there once more.

In 2012, on our drive to Orlando, Florida, we stopped on the Nation Music Corridor of Fame We are a household of nation music fans, so stopping here was a no brainer. It took us about two hours to explor the Hall of Fame, but without kids, we most likely may have taken another two hours. We happened to be their in the course of the Taylor Swift exhibit, which was just superior. The Elvis Presley Gold Cadillac is a must see, along with the silver dollar automotive.

Now we have had our moveable DVD player for years and simply love it for lengthy trips. If you do not have one in your car, there are a lot of portable models. We now have 4 kids so a dual screen system to allow everyone in the van to see the movie is a should. The screens hang from the back of the seats and provide a great distraction on the lengthy journeys.

In January, we began looking for deals to the varied places we wanted to go, deals for park admissions, combo lodge/park admissions, all-inclusivies, and so on. We ended up with a Universal package deal that embody 5 nights at a resort and park admissions to Universal’s Islands of Journey and Common Studios. The navigation was virtually perfect, a couple of occasions it did say go the incorrect route, but this was primarily in construction zones. You wish to know for essentially the most part, where you’re going and the Garmin will assist you to get there. I’m not sure how we might have carried out the journey with out it, and it was worth each penny. I bear in mind growing up on road trips we use to see who would see Volkswagen bugs.
