Hello everybody, this is a great forum! My wife and I are planning an early July road trip. Beginning in Austin Texas we will drive to New Orleans and pick up 2 friends, do bourbon and then head to our friends house near hattiesburg, VA where we will stay for a few days.
Ok so that's the easy part of the trip, we are wanting to take 5 days to get back to NOLA from Virginia. We would like to do some camping along the way in the Appalachians and I am interested in anything to do with colonial historical sites along the way, we are not necessarily set on which route or which states we want to take to get back so we are open to suggestions. Some states we are considering are West Virginia, Tennessee,North Carolina, Alabama, Missippi maybe kentucky but it seems like that might be out of the way for how much time we have.
We would be interested in taking scenic roads rather than highways if at all possible
If it took more than 5 days it would not be the end of the world!
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks everybody!
