  1. Default Atlanta to Charleston, SC - advice?

    Hello, all! I am taking my 17 year old niece to Charleston soon. It's a relatively short drive, but wondering if anyone knows of any kooky / interesting things to stop and see on the way. We're talking just mild stops to break up the trip, not destinations unto themselves. We're going from Atlanta to Columbia, then down to Charleston. Thanks!

    While not exactly on your planned route, there are some pretty cool ideas in this post. Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum!
    We're going from Atlanta to Columbia, then down to Charleston
    As you are driving by Columbia, you could relate the unfortunate tale of the Walter Gregg, (On March 11, 1958 a B-47 accidently dropped an atomic bomb on his property) the built-in safety devices prevented a nuclear explosion, but the conventional explosives created a huge crater and saturated the ground with plutonium -- (this was up by Mars Bluff -- SE of Florence) .

    From our colleagues site, (RoadsideAmerica): the world's largest fire hydrant in Columbia.
    Closer to Charleston is the Edisto Island Serpentarium

    Hopefully, some of our Carolina residents will be here to post some better ideas soon.
