My boyfriend and I are planning a 15 day road trip in September 5th-21st flying from London to NYC, then on to Washington D.C and then to Lexington, Nashville, Memphis, New Orleans. But, we're a bit stuck with the D.C to Lexington route!
We'd love to see some of the Smokey Mountains and love a scenic drive with places to stop off and get meal and drinks etc but nothing overly touristy (if possible). We know it's a really long drive but we're not sure yet if we will stay a night in the Smokeys. We won't be able to bring any walking stuff with us and my boyfriend is allergic to horses so it might be more beneficial with such little time to keep driving.
If you have a great route that isn't too touristy and even if it includes a stay over, that's fine, we'd just be happy for any recommendations!
We also love off the beaten track sort of things so deserted cabins and unique diners etc!
Thanks so much, Amy
