On the road again

The Elliott Family is going on a Summer Wedding Escapade and you’re invited. We’ve sandwiched a north eastern adventure between our cousin’s weddings – yes, both Kari and Chris have cousins tying the knot this year – and we’ll also drop in on an southern style family reunion. Let us know if we’re going to be visiting the city you live in or if you have recommendations on things to see and do while we’re on the road. Music, food, theater, art, history or architecture, anything you’d like to share with us.

Here’s a quick run down of the places we’ll be visiting:

United States
Florida: Orlando (origin)
North Carolina: Charlotte (overnight)
Ohio: Akron (wedding)

Ontario: Ottowa
New Brunswick: Edmundston, Nova Scotia

United States
Maine: Bar Harbor
New York: Albany
District of Columbia: Washington
Georgia: Helen (wedding)
Florida: Orlando

We may have to change the itinerary towards the end of our trip to allow for some paranormal activity in some haunted spots. But don’t worry, we’ll keep you up to date with all the drama as our family of five embark on this five week adventure.

If you’d like us to visit your area on an upcoming road trip, don’t hesitate to send us an email.
