Road Trippin TN, KY, WV

Jump to last reply

Hi There. We are planning a family road trip in less than 2 weeks. We have 7-8 days. We will start in St. Louis with about a day there (more?) (originally from NY) and head onto Memphis, TN. Here is a list I have of stops:
Memphis
Nashville
Smoky Mtn NP
Mammoth Cave NP
Cumberland Gap NP
Shenendoah NP
End at Sesame Place, PA

Hubs and I are in our late 30s, love scenic drives, NPs (when we hiked sans kids) and the natural beauty of our land. Kids (8, 6 and 2) probably have other ideas however. We are not going in a camper, but a minivan and plan on camping some nights, maybe lodges others. Am looking for information on how much time we should devote at each place, whether you think something is not worth a stop or if I should replace something? Obviously need kid-friendly recs and even good lodge like (but clean/pretty) accomodations for the nights in between we do not camp. Any input you could give would be most appreciated! Ideal would be to end up at Sesame Place in Langhorn PA on Saturday morning, start is previous Saturday spent in St. Louis.
Thanks in advance!
