I'm going to leave Atlanta for the northeast this weekend and am just starting to plan. I travel pretty much by the seat of my pants, and am flexible.
What are particular spots of interest for people who like history, but can't do a lot of walking? I have a passenger who cannot walk long distances.
We're open to ideas. These are some points we'd like to see: Roanoke, Virginia. We'd also like to see some of the Appalachians, but have no idea where to go (sorry so ignorant). I've heard of the Smokies Natl Park, but is that something seeable mostly by driving if my passenger cannot hike? Also thinking of visiting West Point and doing some leaf peeping in the NE. Other stops will include Buffalo, NY, and Toronto.
I've spent plenty of time in DC and NYC, so that's not a priority. Philly is a possibility.
