  1. Default New York - Savannah GA - Tennesse - Cinncinati ....

    We have booked flights to New York and are planning on taking a nine day road trip (returning to UK from New York) which we would like to take in the sights down to Savannah Georgia, across to the Jack Daniels distillery, a Tom Petty concert in Cinncinati (on day four), and any Civil war monuments/places of interest on the way. Are we mad? or can this be done? Would love to know your suggestions on which way to go!! ps. Blue Ridge highway looks nice. Thank you

    Default Welcome!

    Welcome to the RoadTrip America Forum!
    Your trip from NYC to Savannah is a two-day trip, covering roughly 830 miles.

    Two things significantly impact this trip: the Savannah portion (is this an absolute must-do?) and needing to be in Cincinnati on the 4th day. If you're looking for Civil War points of interest, I would recommend spending as much time as you can in Virginia, where I've found it nigh impossible to extend my arms without touching some place impacted by the Civil War.

    I am not sure if you are going to be able to see much in Savannah. You could have one long day to North Carolina and then drive from there to Savannah on day 2 I suppose. From NY you are looking at a ton of traffic through the New York - Richmond corridor on I-95. If you want Civil War points of interests, I would agree with Mass Time, Stay in Virginia if Savannah isn't a must see. You can get there on the first day and have a whole day to explore different Civil War sights without having to worry about a drive to Savannah, which, from Fayetteville, NC for example, is a four hour drive.

    On the way to Savannah, you'll pass Fort Fisher near Wilmington, NC. There was a major battle there in January 1865 and the fort's fall sealed the Confederacy off from the rest of the world and hastened the fall of the country.

    Plus, you can visit the battleship USS North Carolina.

    I suggest a stop at Calabash, NC on the SC border for some great seafood. Then, there's Myrtle Beach. If you like Northern Soul Music, Carolina Beach music is a close relative.

    Be sure to stop for some eastern North Carolina bbq.
