In May (arriving on 23rd) my husband and I will arrive Dulles Int Airport, pick u pa car and then decide where to go and what to do. We will be in USA for 17 days. On a previous visit in 2007 we drove right down to New Orleans, on the way we found Pigeon Forge which was a great experience. We dont have as long as before so do not want to go that far and also think it would be good to try some different places. We prefer to try and see the "real side" of an area as well as any listed Tourist Attractions and there must be many place that are not listed as holiday destinations (at least for us in the UK) that would be great to see. We are going to go to Lancaster to see the Amish County and was thinking of going to Kentucky but would be rally grateful for any suggestions from people who know the area as to where else we might go. My husband is fine with driving but obviously we dont want to spend days on end in the car, so we can go anywhere within a reasonable distance as long as we are back in Dulles for our return on 9th June.Any suggestions/recommendations would be gratefully appreciated.
