Just a Drive Away

Spring flowers are blooming, the days are getting warmer and longer, and you can’t help but start counting down to summer break; all signs that it’s time to start thinking about that much-needed vacation. And while hopping on a plane and jetting off to an exotic destination is always a great option, sometimes it is more feasible to travel somewhere a little closer to home. The roadtrip has long been a classic American family vacation and while the idea of driving for days and staying in roadside motels is not exactly appealing, we are here with some incredible properties that will have you packing up the car in no time!
