How far is too far for a day trip?


If you don't want to spend the night somewhere, how far is too far for just a day trip? We are considering making a 3 1/2 hour drive to the beach spending 3-5 hours there then making the ride back. Too far with kids? Would it be too far for you?

    This is exactly what we decided. We are going to spend tomorrow at the lake and try to get there before it gets too crowded so we can actually find a spot! Thanks for the answer!

    My thought was after stops it would probably turn into a 4 1/2 hour ride, so put it off! Thank you!

    We do camp, but it was a last minute idea and all the campgrounds were booked. We have a DVD player in our SUV, but after a lot of consideration decided our 4 year old probably wouldn't make it. Thanks!

    Exactly my husband's opinion. Sadly all the hotels under $300 a night were fully booked. Thanks!

    Thanks They would probably sleep, but were worried our 4 year old would need to many pee stops!

    We live 30 minutes south west of Charlotte in SC. Decided a rushed day with the youngest wouldn't work out too well. The oldest 2 have done long day trips before, but with it being a holiday weekend we didn't want to chance it.
