My aunt and I will begin in Memphis then Knoxville to Gatlinburg for two nights in the Great Smoky Mountains. I've read July is the busy season, that's our trip month, and am looking for spectacular views without too many families. Then, we are heading to Virginia, around the D.C. area, Baltimore, Philidelphia (want to visit flight 93), Gettysburg, OH?, ending in Louisville. We have two nights at each of the locations listed except Gettysburg but I can make another night happen, if necessary. We are both big history buffs and want to see as many museums, historical sites, and national parks as possible.
The trip is, more or less, mapped out but we want to see as many important sites in and out of the major cities. This is my second big road trip in as many years. I am 33 and my aunt is 81. She is very active, travels the world, but stairs and climbing are out of the question. Please advise :)
