We are arriving in Philadelphia on September 14 2008 and are planning a route as far south as Savannah returning to Philadelphia on October 1 when we travel on to New York by train for 3 nights. Our intention is to have a balanced holiday visiting historical places, towns, countryside and the coast and travelling by car from Philadelphia. We are two seniors and really looking forward to our visit to USA. I have just found this very informative web-site and forum.
Our proposed route is Philadelphia,
Lancaster and Amish country
Blue Ridge Parkway
My inclination is that the trip is easier said than done and therefore I am seeking members experiences and suggestions( or criticisms ) on my route and other places that are worth a visit. I am also seeking views on the best places for stopovers and how long I should allocate to each in order to get a feeling of the architecture, heritage and culture.
