  1. Default Boston to Nashville in July

    Planning a mom-daughter road trip. Looking for fun route, have 6 days for driving/exploring. Interested in fun places to stay, activities or places to see. Not that familiar with the Eastern United States so desperately need suggestions.

    Welcome to RTA!

    It might help us help you, if we knew two other things -- what do you consider "fun", and how old is your daughter? My idea of fun might be different from yours, and what a 10 year old would find "fun" may be different than that of an adult daughter.

    Default Also...

    Is this a one way, or round trip? If it's a round trip, you'll only have limited time to visit sites along the way, which will in turn greatly affect what we might suggest both in the way or routes and sights to see.

    My daughter is 22 years old. We travel a lot together. We enjoy adventure type activities, water activities, biking, hiking, enjoying the outdoors. Also really enjoy unique shopping, boutiques, spas, pretty much open to anything.

    This is a one way trip. Flying into Boston for a baseball game then driving South to Nashville which is where my daughter will be moving in the Fall.

    It would be hard to beat driving the Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Parkway, and with 6 days you have plenty of time to do it.

    Default Staying Outdoors, Then

    The great, and little appreciated, thing about the northeastern US is how easy it is to stay away from the large cites and heavy traffic that characterize the coast and instead follow the mountain ranges of the Appalachians that are just inland. In your case, you could easily string together the Berkshires, Catskills, Poconos, Alleghenies and Blues to construct a trip that is all about hiking, caving, river running, wildlife, etc., and still have time for shopping and spas. As general 'targets', check out the Mohawk Trail, the Catskills, Delaware Water Gap, Catoctin Mountain National Park, Shenandoah National Park, Blue Ridge Parkway, Mount Rogers National Recreation Area, and Great Smoky Mountains National Park. For caving there's Skyline Caverns, Luray Caverns, Endless Caverns, and Grand Caverns. For spas, the Pocono resorts built their reputation on catering to newlyweds and spas are a forté of the area. And for shopping, there are at least three different outlet malls in the Roanoke area and several more around Pigeon Forge TN outside Great Smoky Mountains NP. And finally, for nature watching, look into Hawk Mountain Sanctuary and Shawangunk Grasslands National Wildlife Refuge.
