Hi, we are travelling from Scotland on 22 August on a 3 week road trip which we are organising ourselves. We have been to the USA several times, NYC, California road trip and travelled length and breadth of Florida..which we love!
However...apart from NYC all other areas in our trip are completely unknown to us!
We start in New York City for 4 nights, Train to Philadelphia for 2 nights, train to Washington DC for 3 nights, then pick up hire car for rest of the trip. We are then heading through North Carolina, South Carolina and finishing up in Georgia. The places we are certain to visit are Charleston SC and Savannah GA. We were considering somewhere en route possibly 1 night in Blue Ridge Parkway/Shenandoah NP and possibly base ourselves in Wilmington NC for a few days. If anyone has some suggestions for a base in NC ...Wilmington or a beach area...as we may need a wee rest at this point that would b great! Any suggestions on NC and Blue Ridge would be really helpful and much appreciated! We plan to spend 5 nights in Savannah to chill out before flying out of Atlanta back to 'Bonnie Scotland'!
Many thanks in advance!
P.S. we like laid back towns with good food, bit of history... and nice beaches!
