Driving from Moline, IL to St. Pete, FL

Looking for fun places to stop during our road trip from Moline to St. Petes Beach. We will be traveling with two toddlers so something that would be fun for then and resturants that are good for kids.

Are you talking 2 very long days or 3 shorter days? Nashville would be a rather long day. It seems to be 20 hours by the most direct route. The end of the second day would be near Macon Georgia on a 3 day trip.
