Summer is the perfect time to pack up your car and take a road trip. Whether you are looking to get away for just a day, weekend, or an entire vacation, there are countless travel options when it comes to your Midwestern adventure.
With a tank full of gas, you can get just about anywhere, but here are the three best summer road trip destinations.
Whether you’re in the mood for a classic night at the Opry, or exploring 12 South, Nashville has something for everyone. If you’re feeling super adventurous, plan to head to town during CMA Fest, where you’ll be greeted by hundreds of thousands of country music fanatics, and free concerts.
A three hour day trip from Kansas City, Omaha is the perfect place to travel this summer. Full of historic museums and beautiful parks, this Nebraska city is a bustling metropolis in the middle of nowhere. Not to mention, Omaha has one of the country’s best zoos for people of all ages.
A trek to Colorado is one of the best ways you can spend your summer. Denver is a dreamland for thrill seekers, environmentalists, and families alike. Spend your days hiking mountains and reading at the Tattered Cover, and then spend your nights at the world famous Red Rocks Amphitheater. Only a nine hour trip from Kansas City, this town has an atmosphere unlike any other.
