Would appreciate some input for a 28 day trip to south eastern states my wife and I intend to make in September 2015.
We fly into Washington DC at beginning of Sept, picking up a car at the airport before staying with my cousin in Stafford, VA for 2-3 days. We will move on to Scottsville, VA for 1-2 days and then we have a blank sheet until we fly out from Washington DC on first few days of October. A couple of years back we did SF, LA, GC, Arches, Bryce, Zion, LV, DV, Yosemite, Lake Tahoe (just because the Government had closed all NP's!) back to SF. We covered about 4-5,000 miles, so we are not afraid of travelling and we have some fabulous memories of that trip. We've done DC, northern Virginia, Outer Banks and Florida so we thought it was about time we did the rest of the south east.
We like music (not that keen on country) so consider that Macon, Nashville, Memphis and possibly New Orleans are all definite stops. We are interested in history (museums and battlefields) - possibly Selma (having seen the film), Montgomery, Savannah and Charleston. Possibly go to St Louis to meet some fellow travellers we met in China earlier this year, but this is only a possibility. Enjoy walking but not into hiking. My wife didn't make it to Cape Canaveral (20 years ago the kids didn't want to go??) so Huntsville looks another possibility.
As I said 'we have a blank sheet'.
All suggestions or routes would be greatly appreciated.
