Road Trip 2019

Looks like it’s just me and the boys this year for a final roller coaster-centered road trip. We’ll probably be mainly hitting six flags parks, might make it as far as far as Texas, haven’t really thought it through yet, but mainly the eastern half of the USA. What is can’t miss for a 16 yr old and a 12 yr old boy and an immature 48 yr old?

On your way to/from Texas, have lunch in New Orleans. Great seafood, weirdness, mind expanding for all.

Not roller coasters, but here are a couple potential adventures in the southeast.  I did the Gorge Zip Line in NC with my daughter when she was a tween.  It's just south of Asheville.  The best zip line we've done so far.  A lot of the area covered is old growth forest.  The Via Ferrata in WV is on my bucket list for the "green season."

The Mile High Swinging Bridge near the summit of Grandfather Mountain is relatively unique.  People don't expect to get to over a mile high in the south.

Zip line sounds fun. New Orleans is intriguing but it might be tough. I feel like it deserves its own trip. I’ll have to look at that

That sounds like a cool drive Jason. Nashville’s a possibility- a little more on the way between parks the NOLA as well. I guess I’ll have to check that out

Then there is Mammoth Cave in KY.  Not an adventure in the same sense as a via ferreta, but quite unique.  Not many dry caves and Mammoth is . . . well . . . huge.

Save New Orleans for when your sons are of drinking age.  If you want to see an old city with great food, check out Charleston, SC.

Looks like there are classic rollercoasters at Family Kingdom in Myrtle Beach, SC.

Mammoth Cave is just the kind of thing I’m looking for
