We are a South African family travelling to the US in June/July. We plan to spend time in Disney, then drive up to Washington DC. We want to sleep over in Savannah (one night), Atlanta (2 or 3 nights) and rent a cabin near Bryson City (3 nights). Then we have 2 nights (Sun and Mon) to get to DC. Our children are aged 15.11 and 7. I have looked at the area between the Smokys and Washington and I'm not sure what would be the best options. I see there are good music in that area, but I'm not sure whether a Sunday and Monday are the best days for that. Also Shenandoah National Park, but I think by that time we might have had enough of the mountains and would want to do something different. Charlottesville might be an option for one of the nights. Do you have any suggestions, please? My daughter loves horses and we would have enjoyed a rodeo, but I haven't read of any rodeos in the east. Are they only held in the western part of the country? A good science museum or something like that would also be great. Thanks for any input, also regarding the rest of the trip.
