We are 3 Australian adults that are going to be travelling to the USA in May 2013
We will be staying 10 nights in Brooklyn and 1 or 2 nights in Hummelstown (PA) it's from here that we would appreciate any advice re where to go, what to do and see.
We have 3 weeks before we have to be back in Dallas. We are not committed to any single place, just wishing to drive and enjoy the sights, sounds and the foods that the country has to offer.
Our last trip - 2 years ago - took us to Camden (Maine) and the main cities (Boston, New York, Washington, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Las Vegas) we flew or caught a bus or train to most of these places. This time we want to take our time and explode the South.
We will be driving and want to stay away from the main highways.
We hope to be able to experience the more local experiences. (preferably off the beaten track) and stay away from the 'cheesy' tourist attractions.
A rough outline of our route is:
Brooklyn - Hummelstown (PA)
Hummelstown - Richmond (VA)
Richmond - Petersburg (VA)
Petersburg - Raleigh (NC)
Raleigh - Fayetteville (NC)
Fayetteville - Wilmington (NC)
Wilmington - Myrtle Beach (NC)
Myrtle Beach - Charleston (SC)
Charleston - Columbia (SC)
Columbia - Charlotte (NC)
Charlotte - Knoxville(TN)
Knoxville - Nashville (TN)
Nashville - Memphis (TN)
Memphis - Little Rock (AR)
Little Rock - Dallas (TX)
Any advice re places to visit or things not to miss.
