Raleigh, Mammoth, Niagara, and back to Raleigh (or the other way around). Impressive family trip.

I did 5700 miles in RV with our three then-tween sons in the early oughts. Great learning/fun adventure!

In our trip to Louisville, we thoroughly enjoyed a tour of the Louisville Slugger factory (even though we are not baseball fans) and a behind-the-scenes tour of the Kentucky Derby (even though we know little about horse racing).

This was our somewhat failed attempt to "do something small" this summer. Last summer was 7.5 weeks through Mexico and next summer (possibly 2018 instead) will be 6-8 weeks across Europe.

We drove Raleigh to Quebec City and back in 2014 with the five of us in a 14 year old Honda Accord. Now we're rocking a much newer Toyota Sienna minivan, so it should be a breeze. And our 2 year old will be four on this road trip.

The kids love these trips, but in a way I want to do a "do nothing" summer so we can relax at home and do simple stuff.

Even "weekend trips" make for great memories for the kiddos.... so maybe a few shorter and closer trips would be a nice plan for your summer.

My boys still love to travel with us as young adults and I love that. One is going to Hawaii with us in the fall ( and even me paying for his portion in payday installments ). That willingness to hang out with the "old folks" may change when they meet the girls of their dreams though..... you never know about kids ....
