Next Easter flying into Washington DC and then taking 12 nights to get down to Orlando and flying out of there. Places we def want to go Busch Gardens Williamsburg and historic trail of Wi'burg. Paramount Kings Dominion theme park near Richmond. Want to go to Charleston and Hilton Head (DH golf).
What else should we see and do kids DS 12 and DD 8. What about the Blue Ridge Mountains? We were thinking of spending a day in DC having a nose about then driving down part of the way of the mountains and then cutting across Charlottesville towards Richmond.
What do you think? Anyone been? Anyone live there?
Spent a fair bit of time in NC,SC and Georgia.
In NC,worked near Ashville which is lovely lovely lovely.
Savannah and Charleston are completely gorgeous,have also done a lot of MLK relatedstuffin Atlanta.
I would by pass Orlando and go to Alabam,a,Gulf of Mexico (Biloxi and so on) then up to Lousiana.
Not American though.
Just love love love the whole Southern thing!
Agree with Moondog's tips, as I too have spent alot of time around the southest. Some of the most beautiful beaches in America are along the coast of North/South Carolina, Georgia and the gulf coast. There is also alot to do in Atlanta - Stone Mountain, and I think there is a new aquarium that's just opened there. Google for the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce or State Tourism Dept.
Moondog, not sure about Biloxi or Louisiana following the hurricane. Think it's not a great place to go these days.
