Hi all! My husband and I are looking at an early summer roadtrip along the East Coast. We're driving from Chicago to northern Jersey on 6/25/09, will spend 6/26 in NJ for a family event, and then hope to start south early on 6/27. We'd like to visit a friend for a day in Hilton Head, and we will be visiting another relative in Nashville on the evening of 7/10 and then driving back to Chicago on 7/11/09.
Other than those parameters, we're completely open. We're hoping to be able to camp (tent) most nights to save on accommodations, but we will be staying at least a couple nights in hotels, and probably with our friend on Hilton Head when we're there. What are some things we should see or do on the way, and how long do you think we should spend on each?
I have NO idea where to start, so Thanks So Much for your help!
