My dad lives in florida and has been asking that we come visit with the kids. Im looking to go in july. Problem is we dont know if we should fly or drive. If we fly its going to cost $1900.00 and we would have to rent a xar there. If we drice its a long drive with three kids and I would be the only one driving as hubby doesn't drive. It would be a lot cheaper to drive. What would you do??

If I can afford it I always fly. Its the safest quickest way to travel.

I would never drive that long with kids. It's about 20+ hours, non stop, from us. Lol.



I'd fly. :P

I dont mind flying we will need to rent a car when we get there plus it would give us extra time with my dad. Any good sites to find good airline prices?

I love to fly. LO went crazy we took the 6 am flight out and he was THAT kid on the plane talking up a storm laughing and clapping the whole flight. He annoyed everyone but I was just as excited as he was.

Well I have 5 months to find decent prices. Hopefully it works out for us. My son flew with me when he was 8 months old. Cant wait to see how the kids like it lol
