Hi folks. I live in England and my wife and I are planning a joint 50th birthday three or four week trip next April/May. Intention is to fly to NYC, possibly train to Washington DC, hire a car then head south - possibly ending up in Mississippi or as far as NOLA. We're still debating in our minds whether to do a straight North-South trip or a circular, maybe down to Nashville and turning back north-west of the Appalachians, back though Amish country to NYC.
If you can spare a few minutes to give it some thought, I'd be most grateful. We'd appreciate any suggestions and ideas for places to visit and areas to avoid!
