  1. Default Stops to check out from Knoxville, TN to Tybee Islands, GA


    We are going to Tybee Islands, GA but taking the SC route using I-75, I-40, and I-26. Any suggestions on things to stop and see on our way? Will have kids with us so things interesting for them.

    Default A Couple of Quickies

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    On a drive such as this, you run the risk of overextending your kids if you try to stop too often or even too long at one site. The trip involves about 7 hours of driving, so taking a break every couple of hours just to let the children have some run-around-time in a nice setting and maybe a picnic lunch would be all that is needed, especially if they're relatively young. Two such sites that should work would be Pearson's Falls in North Carolina, and Congaree National Park in South Carolina.

  3. Default Thanks

    Thank you for the suggestions -- we will actually be coming from Lexington, KY but the time we are leaving is in the wee hour that the kiddos will be asleep. The great thing is we aren't in a rush to get there since have a rental home.. but exactly want to let them not be in the car for long periods and stretch my legs.

    I hope this route will be scenic since never driven through SC before.

    That changes it a bit - that's 600 miles and it would be wise to break that drive up with an overnight stop.
