So, this summer some friends and I are planning a road trip. It was my idea so I've kind of been put in charge of planning everything out, so I'm looking for some help. None of us have ever gone on a road trip, so we just want to make sure what we're planning so far makes sense.
Right now, we're thinking of going to the Great Smoky Mountains in Tennessee. Is this a place that is worth driving to? We're coming from northern New Jersey so it'd probably be a 14 or so hour drive. We're more than willing to drive that far if it's worth it. So, anyone that has ever been there or knows anything about it, it would be greatly appreciated if you could leave some feedback about the location. If anyone knows of a place closer that is just as good or better, please let me know. Secondly, I was wondering if anyone could provide some times of the year that would be best to go. Obviously, we'd like to go when the least amount of people will be there, and when the heat isn't excruciating. That's all the questions I have...for now. Thanks so much for any help you can provide. I sincerely appreciate any input.
