    Ours always sleep almost the entire trip and when not sleeping they watch TV or play on their electronics.

    We also are planning on leaving the world around 5pm for our trip home. The plan is the same as yours drive 5 to 6 hours then spend the night somewhere and finish the drive back the following day. Do you have a favorite stop off place/hotel or just something that you stop at when you get tired???

    Welcome and if you are driving from PA you qualify for the 2,000 mile club. Check out this thread where we debate routes and even vehicles. The thread is called "For 2,000 + mile round-trip drivers only!" (IV)

    Chalfont - Central Bucks here.

    Always drive and take the 95 route down. Tried 301 around DC once, but didn't seem to save time and got frustrated with traffic there too. So I just put up with the DC - North VA traffic. We usually leave around 8:00am and stay over in GA somewhere, then cruise in before noon the next day. Coming home we leave 5 - 6am and drive straight through. We tried the "drive through the night" trip ONCE. Got down there early in the morning, the room's not ready, I can't keep my eyes open. I slept in the van while the kids swam in the pool. Wasn't worth it for us. We have driven straight down and pulled in around 10:00pm, but that was a waste of a DVC night. Now we just stay up the road (a few hours) at a cheap hotel.

    We are thinking of flying out of Latrobe instead if driving next time. Though I am a little nervous about flying with spirit airlines. Not sure how to manage baggage considering the trip will be 0
    10 nights.

    My one and only is 3. I have found that there are lots to do here. Our favorites are living treasures (a petting zoo in New Castle), Kennywood, and Drive - ins. Fair season is also awesome here.
