Hi all! I'm currently in the process of planning my first real road trip (not just a quick "drive 12 hours home from college as quickly as possible!) this May and am really at a loss as to where to even begin! I'll be honest, I feel like I'm ingested so much web-info and I am still just as overwhelmed as I was originally. Hopefully, I can get some tips from the experts here:)
The plan is to take May 23 - June 1 (or 2nd, at most!) . . . growing and vacation around the Central US, I'm not that interested in seeing more of IA, IL, MO, etc. Getting down to KY and NC quickly is the goal, so that I can have more time to enjoy it there. Aside from spending the weekend in Charlotte for the race, I think I'd like to see Biltmore, possibly head over to Wilmington. I'm thinking that I'd also like to head to Myrtle Beach (although, if one isn't interested in lounging at the beach, what else is there to do?), and possibly Savannah, GA, and Charleston, SC.
At this point, it's looking like I may be taking this trip alone- which is okay with me, since I won't have to worry about fighting over road trip music:) What are suggestions on the best ways to choose a route? Ideas on things not to miss in the area?
