    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Between Savannah and Charlotte (anything specific you're hoping to see there btw?) I would look at adding in a day in Charleston. At the very least, a trip out to Fort Sumter would be worth the trip, although there is plenty of other history in that city too.

    I'd also look at driving at least part of the Blue Ridge Parkway, although be aware, a section of the highway between Mount Mitchell and Asheville is currently closed because of a major failure of the road surface.

    There are also tons of potential Civil War History sites all over your possible routes. For example between Nashville and Memphis you could visit Shilo or Fort Donaldson (which also is next to Land Between the Lakes Recreation area). Or south of Memphis, you could follow either the River Road or Nachez Trace Parkway, and make your way towards Vicksburg.

    New Orleans and the rest of the Gulf Coast would have plenty more potential stopping points as you head back towards Orlando.
