Traveling with a large family can be daunting, but it is worth it when you finally reach your destination. We recently took a holiday trip to Chicago in a 15 passenger van rental from Philadelphia and had a blast.

Are you looking for a fully original way to travel during the holidays? Why not road trip from Philadelphia to Chicago in a 15 passenger van? This is a great way to see some East Coast and Midwest attractions.

When most people think of traveling from Philadelphia to Chicago, they probably think of flying. But there’s another option – traveling by road in a 15 passenger van rental. This is a great way to see some of the East Coast and Midwest attractions.

Here are a few of our favorite attractions from the trip:

Lincoln Memorial

We started our trip in Washington, D.C.; of course, we had to visit the Lincoln Memorial. It was such an amazing experience to see this iconic monument up close and personal. My kids were in awe of the size of Lincoln’s statue and loved reading all of the quotes engraved on the walls. We spent quite a while here exploring and taking pictures.

Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum

This was probably my kids’ favorite stop on the trip. They loved seeing all of the airplanes and learning about how they work. The museum is huge, so we could only explore a small part of it. But we will definitely be back next time we’re in town.

Horseshoe Casino Baltimore

We made a quick stop in Baltimore to check out the Horseshoe Casino. 

This was my husband’s idea, and I admit I was a little hesitant initially. But it ended up being a lot of fun. We played some slots, had a few drinks, and even won a little money. So if you’re ever in Baltimore, I recommend stopping by for fun.

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

If you’re into music, you don’t want to miss the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. It’s huge, and there’s something for everyone – from rock and roll history exhibits to interactive stations where you can play instruments or sing along with your favorite songs.

The Great Lakes Science Center

They will love the Great Lakes Science Center in Cleveland if you have kids. There are tons of hands-on exhibits and demonstrations, as well as a planetarium and an IMAX theater.

We spent a good chunk of the day exploring everything the science center offered.

Chicago’s Navy Pier

This was one of our favorite stops on the trip. My kids loved riding the Ferris wheel and checking out all the shops and restaurants. We spent a few hours here and could have easily spent more.

Bottom Line: Rent a 15 passenger van in Philadelphia to make your trip fun and easy.

If you’re looking for an amazing road trip destination this holiday season, I highly recommend taking a road trip out to Chicago. There are so many great things to see and do, and you’re sure to create lasting memories with your family and friends.
