We live in such a dynamic part of the world with lots of hustle and bustle. There is so much to see and do right here in the Atlanta area alone. But sometimes, it’s nice to hit the road and simply take the family out of the city and just get away. Americans have had a love-affair with the automobile since the early 1900s. That passion for automobiles has not waned, and we love to hop in the car for a good old-fashioned road trip.
But where should you go? Check these top 5 family-friendly spring-break road-trip destinations:
If you’re interested in a beautiful place to camp that’s only about 2-hours outside of Atlanta, check out Chattahoochee National Forest.
