On the road again
The Elliott Family is going on The Most Epic Family Road Trip and you’re invited. 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:
Florida: Orlando (origin)
North Carolina: Charlotte (overnight)
Pennsylvania: Harrisburg (overnight)
New York: Rochester
Washington: San Juan Islands, Seattle
Oregon: Portland, Bend
Idaho: Boise (overnight)
Nebraska: Lincoln (overnight)
Iowa: Des Moine
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 almost nine week adventure.
If you’d like us to visit your area on an upcoming road trip, don’t hesitate to send us an email.
