Can anyone advise?
Thinking of booking flights to Atlanta for September/ October and doing a road trip to Charleston and Savanna maybe a beach couple of days.
Has anyone done this? Was it good?

I have - we have friends in Atlanta and have been several times, - once we took a road trip from Atlanta up the coast through Savannah and Charleston and on to stay with friends in Raleigh. It was a good trip, I liked Charleston a lot more than Savannah but the islands near Savannah (Tybee?) were fun. Good food in Charleston!

Been to Nashville, Atlanta, Charleston and quick stops in Colombia in South Carolina and Raleigh in North Carolina. Loved it all.

We've driven from Toronto to Savannah a few times.

Savannah is an amazing town. The bus tour is good to find out about the history. Really cool place. Tybee Beach is fab- very bohemian- and some great restaurants for brunch.

Atlanta is a great city to visit. The Zoo is wonderful and the Coca Cola museum is pretty fun. Stone Mountain is worth a trip. It is a busy place though - quite exhausting to get around.

Charleston is lovely although has some very poor areas which are pretty shocking when there is obviously so much wealth around.

Driving in the US is very easy. Lots of places to stop with good hotels and eateries.
