I am trying to put together a last minute trip with my 80 year old Mom. We've got some days free when we can travel and I can't decide where to go....we would have 5 days to spend in whatever destination we choose, Thursday through Monday. My sister will be flying down to meet us for the weekend. I think my sister would like to go to Ashville (to see the Biltmore Estate and maybe raft the river) since she hasn't been there before but is willing to meet us in Charleston. My thought is that there is more to do in and around Charleston....so that might be the better destination for this particular trip.... But I've never been to any of these areas and I just don't know. I'll have a car available. Any suggestions on what we might do? Many thanks! One thing, we all enjoy eating well, and I've often travelled to New Orleans just for the food, so I'm looking forward to this visit.
