Question for all of the Southern Popples...
Does anyone know of any good spots within 8 or so hours from here that would be good for a weekend trip?
That leaves New Orleans (which we've been to half a dozen times in the past few months & his newest game is going to be based out of NO so we'll be making more trips down there soon enough), the Gulf coast region, Atlanta, Chattanooga, Memphis, Gatlinburg, Huntsville (I was thinking the boys might enjoy the space center there), places in Arkansas, and all the areas around there.
Jakob and Brandon are both out for spring break next week. We were supposed to go visit the ILs for half the week, but she had a work trip come up suddenly so we're waiting until Easter break to go visit now. Jason took off Sunday & Monday - so he's off Friday-Monday. We thought we'd take a quick trip this weekend since we haven't had a trip just for us in a while.
The problem is...I don't know if there's stuff the boys will be able to do & have fun doing it in any of these places. I know the incline, alpine slides & aquarium, Rock City/Ruby Falls (they've been to those) in Chattanooga - but that's about it. We took them to the Memphis Zoo last year & we've been to the Birmingham Zoo several times.... I was thinking Atlanta had the new amusement park for kids next to Six Flags and then the Atlanta Zoo - but I don't really know what else is around there to keep them busy.
Anyway...thanks in advance for any help! We always just travel to see the ILs or to go to football games in New Orleans - so planning a trip for family fun is lost on me! lol
Okay, here's a regional map for reference (for Karma! lol). My town is where the red star is.
