I am hoping somebody here can give me some advice. My boyfriend and I are planning a trip to the states,(31st of August until 17th of September) starting in New York and ending with visiting friends in Chicago. In order to get from New York to Chicago we love the idea of a road trip. We have 6 days scheduled for this and hope to take in some of the beautiful nature. We are thinking of going via Great Smokey Mountains, is that doable in 6 days, considering we want to take our time and also go hiking there?
It is difficult in this period to find accommodation, or in other words, do we need to book in advance or can we take the risk of just booking on the spot so we do not have to stick to some schedule but can just drive and see?
Looking forward so any advice you can give us, much appreciated
