Hey guys coming to the States for 24nights in December over Xmas and New Year, it's Dad and DD21, but we can't decide on route for the trip! I was thinking of reserving the trip round, which would start us off in New Orleans but I really wanted to end the trip on a high in NOLA!
I'm thinking maybe this route instead:
Atl [1 night] > Savannah [2 nights] > Charleston [3 nights] > Wilmington [1 night] > Asheville [2 nights] > Gatlinburg [2 nights] > Nashville [3 nights] > Memphis [3 nights] > Vicksburg [1 night] > New Orleans [4 nights] > Altanta [2 nights]
At the minute though puts us in Vicksburg for Xmas day, vica versa Charleston, but it would be driving from Memphis to Vicksburg on Xmas Day, or Wilmington to Charleston on Xmas Day.
New Year Eve will be Atlanta as we fly home on Jan 1st.
I'd had a few people recommed I don't need 3 nights in Savannah, Nashville and Memphis. I'd decided I could probably cut a night from Savannah, but I need the 3 nights in both Nash & Mem, as I want to visit Jack Daniel's Distrilly & Franklin, TN and need time to do so, and Memphis I want to go the the zoo so will need a half day for this.
I've also cut Blowing Rock from the route, and Blue Ridge...and hopefully save that for another trip one day, as there could be snow, and icy closed roads, and don't want this to affect our trip. Instead I've put Wilmington, NC in, as I'm a One Tree Hill fan, and my Dad, Dawson's Creek.
If I don't do 4 nights in NOLA, I was thinking I could either add it back to Savannah, put Blowing Rock back in the mix, or add to either Asheville or Gatlinburg.
