I might be going on a road trip to Georgia later this month. At first I thought about 5-6 days but I found out it wouldn't be realistic with all my projects so I'll probably add a couple of days (9-10). It is not a sure thing yet though...
Okay so here's my rough plan :
-zoom through the northern States on I-81 and I-64 to Shenandoah NP, VA;
-Blue Ridge Parkway;
-Atlanta : Cyclorama, Oakland Cemetary, Marietta Sq, MLK N.H.S., check out a few outdoor terraces;
-Decatur, GA : Watershed Restaurant, alternative nightlife;
-Juliette, GA : Fried Green Tomatoes filming location;
-Savannah : Historic Homes, Jazz & Blues Clubs, Telfair Museum, Flannery O'Connor house, Forsyth Park, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil Tour;
-Beaches : Skidaway Island/Tybee Island, GA;
-Charleston, SC : Museums, walking tours, beaches, Magnolia Plantation;
-Cape Hatteras, NC : beach, lighthouses;
-Historic Triangle VA : Yorktown, Wiliamsburg, Jamestown;
-Chesapeake Bay Bridge to US13 through DE;
-Avoid Baltimore and NYC and zoom back to Quebec through the State of NY;
Like I said it is a rough plan, I might not stick to it, depending on what you have to suggest. According to this itinerary, do you have any suggestions of off the beaten path places? I'm mostly looking for charming small towns, special restaurants, local food and southern cuisine, jazz/blues clubs, alternative nightlife, history, architecture, quiet beaches, cheap lodging (motels, B&B, no hostels), short hikes. What park has the best beaches between Skidaway and Tybee Island in GA? I'd also like to hear about any beach worth considering between GA and NC that is not too crowded or touristy and about secondary routes between all of the above mentionned destinations.
