If your the kind of family that likes to hit the open road for some adventure, then grab your family and head down the I-5 and make sure you take time to check out some of these hot spots that are freeway close and family friendly!1. San Diego Zoo
It's a LONG trip, but it's a memorable one! Our family took this trip in the summer of 2012 and broke it up with 2 nights in a hotel. There are too many stops listed to make it doable in that amount of time so choose the ones that work for your family.
Activities, restaurants, and hotels are listed along the way to make it fun with kids, and great for parents. The stops are in order from south to north (SoCal to Montana)
Have you ever thought about taking a short road trip? Maybe you have toddlers? This is a great start! Minnesota to South Dakota and back can be a great adventure, without the great distance!1. Red River Zoo
