My college age daughter, hubby and I are planning a genealogy road trip leaving Evanston IL during the beginning of the memorial day week-end ultimately travelling on a budget and trying to visit Dalton, Rome, Cave Springs as well as Atlanta and Ft Valley to see a friend. We are hoping to start the drive that Friday from Illinois and arrive that Sat am. We want to spend at least a full week visiting local archives, libraries. Can any one advise us of other activities during our non genealogy research time. We love history and southern food-well it's the ancestors! We will probably visit another family member outside of Atlanta during Memorial Day.
Is this too ambitious distance wise? Please advise on suitable and reasonable lodging for these budget minded historians.Edited: 23 April 2012, 04:47
