  1. Default Indiana to Miami

    Hey everyone!

    Me and two of my best friends are planning a road trip from central Indiana to Miami this Spring Break! We were all wanting to know of anyone knows of anything interesting to stop and see along the way. It's a pretty big trip so there's gotta be something. :-) We were also wanting some tips about road tripping all together being that this is our first big trip. We do know that we want to stay in hotels/motels along the way but, we are actually starting to consider camping a little bit on the way too.....What about packing? Since we are taking my car, we are going to have a trunk big enough to hide a couple of bodies But, seriously it's huge. Also, we are going to put together an emergency kit to keep back there as well. What should go in there? Are there any suggestions out there?

    Default Scenic route


    My preferred route from central Indiana would be to Lexington, KY; to Knoxville, TN; through Great Smokies National Park; to Asheville, NC; toward Charleston, SC; to Savannah, GA; and on down the coast.

    There are many interesting places along the way such as Oconoluftee Indian Village in Cherokee, NC, the Biltmore Mansion near Asheville, the town of Savannah is classic old south and is worth a stop, St. Augustine has an interesting fort made of sea shells and an old town section that dates back to the 1500s and houses dating from the 1700s and 1800s, the beaches along the coast are great, and there are interesting tours of Cape Canaveral near Titusville, FL where all the space shuttles are launched.

    You can take a slightly more direct route home through Orlando, Atlanta, Nashville and Louisville, seeing different territory. Along the way are the Agrirama in Tifton, which is a recreated 1890 farm and village, Occmulgee Indian Mounds and the Hay House in Macon, GA, lots to see in Atlanta, Ruby Falls (in a cave) and the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga, and various music venues in Nashville.

    Camping is certainly a possiblity if you have some basic gear such as a tent, sleeping bags, some cooking/eating/cleaning utensils and supplies, a cooler (which you should have anyway) and some warm clothing.

    The trip is about 1,300 miles each way so you'll need to plan two overnights each way...maybe Ashville and St. Augustine on the way down, and Tifton, GA and Nashville on the way home.

    Have a great, safe holiday,
