Nashville is a great starting point for a road trip! Someone once told me that you could reach two-thirds of the population of the U.S. by driving 12 hours or less! Visit the beautiful beaches of the Gulf shore in 6 to 8 hours, see Mickey Mouse and his friends at Disney World in about 12 hours, or explore Washington D.C. in less than 10 hours. Plus, there are LOTS of interesting sites to see that are even closer. Here are some of the places we have explored on road trips with our families. Hopefully, our adventures will inspire you to jump in the car and take a family road trip too!
