I am in the beginning stages of planning a 2 week road trip for May. We're starting in Michigan and the plan now is to drive down towards Atlanta, GA and then Gulf Shores, AL. There are a few things in the ATL area we'd like to check out and then spend a few days at the gulf. Looking for tips/ideas and help planning the trip. What to see and where to stay along the way. We're not big into museums, but enjoy historical sites (specifically the Civil War/antebellum trails). Also enjoy weird roadside attractions (I've checked on another site for some info). We're looking at driving south on 1-75, and would like an alternative drive home, possibly thru the Carolinas to the Charlotte/Mooresville area - then we'll follow I-77 north.
