We are in the early stages of planning our summer 2011 US road trip. Will have about two weeks, and will be flying in and out of Atlanta.
Our initial thoughts are leaving Atlanta after 1 night, and then on to Chattanooga, Nashville, Memphis, and then a leisurely(?) drive over to Charleston and Savannah via Birmingam. Then back to Atlanta to fly home. All in about 1500 miles. Does this seem practical? It's just the two of us and we are happy with two or three hours driving each day. Quite happy with plenty of 1 night stays, with 2 nights where appropriate. The core idea of this road trip is visiting Memphis (for Graceland) and Charleston. Grateful for any advice/comments.
