When Terri’s oldest of five children completed middle school, she realized that the opportunity to travel with her big family was limited. The window of time to travel together before jobs, sports, and dating would monopolize their lives would be over soon. Yet, there were so many places she wanted to travel with her children. She realized that they couldn’t wait anymore and plans an Ultimate Road Trip across the USA, followed by a European Expedition a few years later.
The Ultimate Road Trip USA with 5 kids encompassed 30 states and 20+ national parks over a span of nine weeks. The extended vacation included visits to Mount Rushmore, Devil’s Tower, Yellowstone, Glacier National Park, Olympic National Park, Yosemite, the Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, Bryce Canyon National Park, Arches National Park and more. Major cities visited include New York City, Washington, DC, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle. The family took advantage of multiple kinds of accommodation including hotels, cabins, rental homes, resorts, a ship, campgrounds, and relatives’ homes.
