Fall break is almost here and it is the perfect way to spend time with your family. The weather is starting to become milder, school has started, and there might be some overwhelming feelings. If you are wanting to get out of town and make this year’s fall break memorable, Lindsey from Let Me Give You Advice has some amazing places for you!
For Your Explorers
If you and your family are into exploring, look no further than Mammoth Cave in Kentucky. Mammoth Cave is a part of the largest cave system in the world and provides several opportunities for you and your family to explore this wonder. They offer many ranger-led tours, an opportunity to gain a Junior Ranger badge, and many hiking possibilities. Lindsey recommends stopping in either Nashville or Louisville to have a solid three to four-day trip and she even picked out some fun stops along the way if you are coming down I-65!
For Your History Buffs
Our nation’s capital is beautiful and a great way to spend fall break if you have older kids. Museums are free in D.C. and there are many different walking tours to view significant sites and monuments. Lindsey even has a family-friendly guide for you if you want to go! Visiting D.C. during the fall also means that you miss out on a lot of the heat and humidity that is typical of the city. Watch you and your kids get a fun and educational trip if you visit.
For Your Nature Lovers
Gatlinburg, Tennessee is a great place to spend your fall break. The mountains are beautiful and there is an abundance of trees changing colors. Spend time in a cabin or camping while you hike and explore the Great Smokey Mountain national park. Or you can head into town and enjoy the attractions there. They have mini golf, Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum, the Tennessee Aquarium, and many shops to explore. Lindsey does warn about the crowds during this time of year, so if you and your family want to go to Gatlinburg this fall, start planning!

St. Louis is perfect if you and your family enjoy exploring a big city. You can visit the arch, see the Mississippi River, and tour museums and the zoo, many of them being free, in St. Louis.
