I have been enjoying this site for a while now but now want to take the plunge and start asking for some advice!
We have been saving for a retirement trip for years now but it always seemed in the distant future. My husband has now decided that he's had enough (he's a policeman) and that trip is looking like a reality for next year. I am so excited!
I have so many specific place-related questions but thought I'd begin with asking for advice about when we should go and also whether our travel plans/dreams are unrealistic!
We have up to 4 weeks and would like to fly in and out of Atlanta (from UK), hire a car and then
Atlanta (1 night)
Charleston (2 nights)
Savannah (3 nights)
Night somewhere en route to New Orleans
NO (5 nights)
Drive up to Memphis (5 nights)
Memphis (3 nights)
Nashville (2 nights)
Rest of time somewhere in Smokies or similar
Is that a silly over ambitious plan. My husband says he's happy to do a lot of driving!
If it is too much I would appreciate some thoughts about tweaking it a bit. Our interests are music, history, culture.....nothing too highbrow!
Many many thanks
Night somewhere between
