Summer is a great time for road trips and you don’t have to go far from home to discover many wonderful touristy treats. Over the last few years we’ve been sending area writers out to “test drive” these trips (with kids in tow of course) and they’ve come back and shared their thoughts, tips, and recommendations.
Below are 14 (plus a few bonus trips!) of our favorite such articles. The next time your family has a free 24 hours and a full tank of gas, why not hop in the car and seek out a bit of adventure?
Keep in mind if you’re traveling with toddlers or younger children, we have an excellent resource for you in our Huntsville area travel map. It lists all the places for pit stops that little ones will love!
Do you know of a local gem we need to make sure our writer’s review? Leave your idea/request in the comments and we’ll start scoping out a new daytrip to add to this list!
