We are a couple with a baby (1 year old). We plan to come to New York around mid-May, stay there for a few days, and then road-trip south to New Orleans, then fly back to New York for our returning flight to Europe.
We have around 3 weeks in total.
We love good food, wine/beer, nature and some hiking, and sightseeing. We want to feel the culture and learn about its history too.
Currently the general plan is to pass through these points:
- Washington DC
- Blue Ridge Parkway
- Smokey Mountains
- Natches Trace all the way to...
- New Orleans
We also want to rent an RV, but as this is going to be our first time in one, I'm afraid 3 weeks is going to be too much, so preferably if it's possible to rent it only for a week or so, in some part of the trip.
How long do you think we should stay on each point?
Is 3 weeks too much? Should we shorten the road trip and leave a few days for upstate New York?
Would appreciate any feedback.
