Summer Fun Guide: 7 Great Road Trips


Bertrand, Amy, St Louis Post-Dispatch (MO)


Branson

The big news in Branson this summer is the Outlaw Run roller coaster at Silver Dollar City. With speeds reaching 68 mph, it's the second-fastest wood coaster in the world and features the first double barrel roll on a wood coaster. It's also the only wood coaster to twist upside-down three times. Also new in the Live Music Capital of the World are Minneapolis comedian Joey I.L.O. from NBC's "Last Comic Standing," "Totally 70's Music Explosion" with Barry Williams (of TV's "Brady Bunch") and "The Price Is Right, Live!" at Welk Resort Theatre. Stay in the heart of the action at the Welk Resort or relax in a cabin on Table Rock Lake at Big Cedar Lodge. More info branson.com

Chicago

For a big-city vacation within driving distance, Chicago is the place to go. Stay along the Magnificent Mile in the gorgeous Peninsula or the new Radisson Blu and spend the weekend shopping, visiting museums or seeing shows, such as "Book of Mormon" or "Catch Me If You Can." Go June 6-9 for the free Blues Festival or June 9- 13 for Taste of Chicago, one of the world's largest food festivals. Kids will love Shedd Aquarium with its aquatic show and views of Lake Michigan; the touristy Navy Pier with its Children's Museum; and the Lincoln Park Zoo. They'll also love playing on a beach close to home. More info choosechicago.com

Stay near or at Crown Center (a mix of hotels, shops, theaters and indoor play areas) and you won't even need your car. But if you do have one, head to the Kansas side of the city for one of only two T-Rex Cafes in the country. Go on a dino dig and watch giant animatronic dinosaurs and light shows while you dine. Kids and adults will also enjoy the Fed's Money Museum and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. More info visitkc.com
