We recommend leaving anytime between 8:30 am – 9 am. The later you leave, the less time you may have to complete all the stops. 

None of the stops require an entrance fee. You will want change for parking and all food and drink purchases are the travellers responsibility. 

Unfortunately, this trip is not pup-friendly. We recommend quite a few indoor destinations on this road trip, so you will have to leave them at home for the day!
