    Default Boston to Tennessee?

    Hey ya'll,

    New here, and taking my first serious roadtrip with a friend this coming February. We are taking a week and driving from Boston to Tennessee to visit a friend of ours.

    We are looking for some cool/interesting/quirky/fun things to see and do along the way and I was hoping that I might find some suggestions here?

    We are down for pretty much anything, so gimme all ya got!

    Default Not a Lot of Time

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    I'm assuming that you are planning on being back in Boston at the end of your week and that you plan to spend at least a few days in Tennessee. I also assumed Nashville for general planning purposes. You're looking at two days minimum each way for the driving portion of the trip which will leave some time for sight some seeing, but of course you can spend more time on the road if that's your predilection. If you head basically down I-81 you'll get a fairly scenic drive with a couple of national parks, Shenandoah and Great Smoky Mountains. There are also a number of Civil War Battlefields including three of the most important: Gettysburg, Antietam and Manasas. Another possibility is to Take US-209 through northwestern Pennsylvania down the Delaware Water Gap. Unfortunately, at this time of year both the Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Parkway are probably closed due to snow. If you're looking for seriously curvy road, see if you can fit in the 'Tail of the Dragon', US-219 around Deals Gap, NC. And as a general reminder: You don't have to use the same route back that you used going down.
