  • Drive, and either do it in shifts or stop at 8hrs and spend the night and then start back up the next day

  • We always drive every where. Longer trips we try to split up more and take turns driving.

  • Drive we love road trips. We drove to Colorado over Christmas break was a 12 hour drive. We stopped at places along the way and had a great time. Tickets to fly were 500 a piece there are 5 of us so driving was more economical. Also flying would not just be 2 hours. Where we live you need to be at the airport at least 2 hours early and then there were two flights that totalled 4 hours, we have to wait for baggage then a rental car so it is a big hassle to fly sometimes and not always that much faster.

  • I don't mind driving. A couple years ago we drove from Denver to northern Iowa and back to Denver all in one weekend. It was kind of fun. There's a little more freedom when driving. You can leave when you want to, stop when you want to, and the only people you really have to deal with are the ones in your car. So if possible, I prefer driving.

  • Drive! We drive everywhere. I never like flying and with the four of us, it just isn't affordable. We even drove to Chicago(from TX) last summer and it was great. Stopped/Stayed in St. Louis and did the touristy thing there too... wouldn't have done that if we flew. Love driving cause it makes you see what you'd otherwise skip right over.

  • Drive, its cheaper and flying with 2 adults and 2 kids who are 3 and 5 costs money. There considered adults which i think its dumb but anyhow. i rather drive and save money on plane tickets. and its funner to drive and look at all the places around you

  • drive it is to much of a hassel to fly with the 2 kids and now that my son is 3 he has to have a ticket for him too cause he has to be in a car seat it would cost to much for 4 of us to fly much cheaper driving
