    So the wife wants to do a road trip to see some family in Virginia during our kid's spring break.
    I need some cool spots to stop and things to show the kids (ages 9 ,5, and 2) on the way and also things to do while we're there.Cival War,Nature,man made ....what ever.

    We are up near Chicago and are going to Richlands Va,

    This is the route we will be taking ...if it helps

    Do NOT stop at cousin Eddie's, even if he does offer you shoes.

    Winchester, VA is a beautiful old town. The old main street looks as if you were back 100 years ago with a canopy of beautiful old trees covering the street. It is not far from the War Between The States battle of Sharpsburg if you like history. I also like the historic town of Lexington where Robert E Lee and Stonewall Jackson are burried.

    1) Bring all guns with you
    2) Drive straight to VA, do not stop
    3) Stop by Alexandria on your way to Richmond
    4) Drop all guns off at my place
    5) Profit
