So before this baby arives, I wanna take a road trip. I love driving and I loved it when I was little. And I wanna make it special for my daughter, something for her before her whole life changes. So I want some help. I'm looking at probably April, so ill be pretty pregnant. I'm thinking North Carolina, there is the great wolf lodge which is an indoor water park and about 9 hrs drive. Anyone else have other ideas? Something aimed toward a 6 year old?

That sounds like an awesome trip for a six year old. I love North Carolina, I would recommend Asheville because I love it there but I have not taken my son there yet so I don't know what they have for that age range.

Hubby was on a business trip in NC a few weeks ago and was staying a few miles from the Great Wolf Lodge. He drove down there to check it out and said it was amazing. I want to go there once our child is old enough to enjoy it (but who am I kidding- I'm totally going to be going down those slides as well!).

I love road trips as well, and NC in April will be really nice!

I like Gatlinburg as well- we've spent a few Christmases up there in cabins and had a good time. April would be good for hiking and there are some awesome places your daughter would enjoy- Cade's Cove in the morning is pretty much guaranteed deer viewing, there are easy waterfall hikes, horseback riding, etc.

Where do you live? What is your limit of driving time? I've been on road trips up and down the east coast and there are so many good options!

Were in central florida, i just don't want to be in the car for over a day. So anything in that range would be ok. And I'll have to look up Cade's Cove, sounds pretty.

Hey cool, Floridians. We're down a little south of you guys, down between Sarasota and Ft. Myers.

I love road trips too. We're planning a trip to SC sometime this spring to stay with hubby's aunt at her vacation house. Then we'll make the trek up to KY when this baby is about 3 months old (my family lives there).

How about some of the water parks in Orlando? Is that too close to Lakeland?

Aww, I was hoping you were closer! I'm just west of Orlando, and a little over an hour from Tampa
