My friend and I (two females) are driving from San Diego to NYC next week and would love to know of some really cool cities to stop in. We have about 10 days. We are planning on taking a more southern route. Originally we were thinking:
1) san - albuquerque (just to sleep) two days straight drive - 1 night
2) oklahoma (Oklahoma city or tulsa) or austin - 2 nights
3) nashville - 3 nights
4) charlson, sc - 2 ngihts
but its a lot of driving in between these cities and i'm wondering if anyone can suggest other worthwhile cities that may be closer. The only place we are truly set on is Nashville.
We were thinking Oklahoma or Austin....Also heard Ashville, NC, is beautiful as well as Charleston, SC , and Williamsburg, VA but those last two are kind of out of the way. Is Charleston worth the extra drive, or are there other cities that are worth stopping in to between Nashville and New York? We are socal girls so anything with a east coast/southern vibe and soemthing different would be great! We also will be spending Christmas in one of those cities so keep that in mind:)
Also, does anyone have suggestions for a decent place to stop prior to Oklahoma/Texas? Although it would be brutal we were plnaning on doing two straight days of driving b/c we've heard the better parts (on the southern route) are east of texas. let me know if you know of anything different.
Appreciate any and all suggestions!
