  1. Default Georgia,Tennessee,and Carolinas Spring 2010

    We have enjoyed several driving vacations in the US in the past to the West Coast, New England, and the Capitol region and are now planning a vacation in the South Eastern USA for April/May 2010.

    We have the following tentative itinerary at the moment and would welcome any comments and suggestions for improvements.

    Other than the landscape, scenery, and the obvious music connections of Nashville and Memphis, we are interested in history including civil war sites.


    Day 1 Fly to Atlanta and overnight Atlanta
    Day 2 Atlanta - Nashville
    Day 3 Nashville
    Day 4 Nashville - Memphis
    Day 5 Memphis
    Day 6 Memphis - Tupelo - join the Natchez Trace Parkway heading North. Overnight Linden TN
    Day 7 Rejoin the Natchez Trace parkway - Franklin - Chattanooga
    Day 8 Chattanooga - Asheville NC
    Day 9 Asheville - overnight enroute to Charleston (suggestions for location)
    Day 10 TBA - Charleston
    Day 11 Charleston - Savannah
    Day 12 Savannah
    Day 13 Savannah - Atlanta and fly home

    Default Some Suggestions Here and There

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Taking a quick look at your route and interests, there are a few sites along the way that you might want to include: Stone Mountain outside Atlanta, Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park, Stones River National Battlefield, the Tennessee National Wildlife Refuge, and in Tupelo Elvis' birthplace. Although the Natchez Trace is a great byway, taking it all the way back to Nashville might be a bit counterproductive in your case. I'd suggest instead, that you take it only as far as US-72 in northwestern Alabama and then use US-72 west and MS-25/TN-57/TN-142 north to Shiloh National Military Park. From there US-64 offers an interesting route across southern Tennessee and back to Chattanooga.

    Then for your next loop through Charleston and Savannah, there's Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Fort Sumter of course, but also Hunting Island State Park on the coastand Fort Pulaski National Monument outside Savannah.

    You probably won't have time for all of heat , but it's a pleasant problem to have to choose from such a list.

    Asheville to Charleston is an easy 5 hour drive on I-26, so if you need to make up any time, this would be a prime day to do that.

    Thanks guys !

  5. Default Natchez Trace Parkway

    There are lots of things to see along the Natchez Trace Parkway from Tupelo to Nashville. 180 miles of beautiful country. Lots of history, many natural wonders and the serenity of traveling on the Trace without commercial (i.e. no commercial traffic, no billboards/advertising) interruption.
