StoryLand in New Orleans, LA!
New Orleans is not typically a place thought of for children, but my sister and I went here when we were kids, and it is about as magical a place as you can get.
Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, GA. It is great for kids and families!
Top 10 places every southern child should go
Just had our 2 1/2 yr grandson visit us in Chattanooga, Tn for a week. Wonderful place for kids - we took him to Rock City, rode the Incline Railway, visited the Tennessee Aquarium, Creative Discovery Musuem, and finished the week at the Tennessee Railroad Musuem spending the day with Thomas the Train! We all had a wonderful time and made wonderful memories. There was still lots to do for another time!
Our kids love St. Loius-zoo, Grants Farm, museums, baseball games.
We also love Gatlinburg-picnic in Cades Cove, climing on rocks at the Chimneys, Dollywood, aquarium, Ripley's, Ober Gatlinburg. I recommend the fall when the leaves change or early spring when everything is in bloom. It's a beautiful drive. Stay in Townsend. It's great.
The Discovery Place in Charlotte, NC
The TN Aquarium in Chattanooga, TN
Walt Disney World (of course! )
Every southern child should visit Charleston. This will be one of the most fascinating places they will ever visit. This wonderful town has an incredible history, great food, culture and so much more.
Lots of fun for the young guys .... and in the summer the weather is fine!
