Trip with a Nine Year old Girl

Jump to last reply

It is a family tradition when a girl turns nine to go on a trip just with Mom. This was begun with my oldest who got so into the Laura Ingalls Wilder books when she was nine that we took a sojourn out west to see all the places she lived. It was a wonderful trip and when we returned, everyone said, "well, what are you going to do with the other kids?" and of course the answer was "take them on a trip, when they turn nine". Thus traditions are born. My current nine year old loves: adventure, odd things, such as "world biggest yarn ball" or "largest metal chicken", and nature. I'm not looking to do a big city, but a smaller town or road trip between several small towns. Must be continental USA, we live in Pittsburgh, so east coast is more likely. Time frame: it has to be during spring break (mid april). So far I have been looking at the Sequoia National Park/Kings Canyon in CA, but I'm worried it will be too cold in April. I see it's still considered "winter" until May.
Other ideas for quirky places to visit where it will be warmish in April?
I'd love to hear about fun mother-daughter trips!
