We are a family of 4 Brits (including 2 teens). Having done an RV trip in the west (Las Vegas, SF, Grand Canyon etc) we wanted to do a similar trip in the east/south but discovered it was much cheaper to book hotels with microwave/fridge each night than to rent the rv, pay extra for gas and site fees every night. This is all arranged now, we have a villa in orlando for a week, then one night at panama city beach (to dip our toes in the the warm waters of the gulf), 3 nights in New Orleans, a long drive to a 3 night stay in memphis, 2 nights in Nashville, then a dash back to Washington with one night in Gatlinburg with a look at the Smoky mountains, and one night in Dublin Virginia.
Does anyone have any suggestions for things to do on our route? Or good reasonably priced lunchtime stops between destinations? Thanks.
