Atlanta Road Trip to Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Ohio

Atlanta Journey to Cuyahoga Valley National Park, Ohio

Family road trips used to be the staple for summer vacation, and it’s time to bring them back. Studies show that road trips help with family bonding and kids are more likely to remember the journey better than the destination. Flying is also an ever increasing expensive option and being in a crowded airport is kind of risky with the current COVID pandemic. That is why Airport Van Rental is dedicated to helping plan your next summer vacation with our new journey blog that showcases great options. Below is a journey option from the starting location of beautiful Atlanta, ending at a site of natural beauty, Cuyahoga National Park. At AVR, we understand that the journey should be just as fun as the destination and we will continue to showcase safe journey options for a memorable experience. We even offer 12 or 15 passenger van rentals, so the family can stay spread out while on the road, or so the entire family can get in on the fun. Do summer vacation the right way, with an AVR journey and van rental.
