24 Day Southern USA Road Trip

Jump to last reply

Hi Fodors Forumites!

My partner and I have recently purchased a 17ft campervan and are planning a 24 day trip around the South. We live in Montreal, Canada and we're in our early 30's. We like good food, music, culture and hiking/visiting National Parks.

Here is our itinerary so far. We still have a few days to play with and are looking for suggestions. We know there is a lot of driving and we're OK with that!

Charleston and Savannah are not on this list - we'll be doing that trip later on in the year.

Day 1: Montreal - Louisville

Day 2: Louisville - Nashville (taking in some towns along the Bourbon trail)

Day 3 - 4: Nashville

Day 5: Nashville - Memphis

Day 6 - 7: Memphis

Day 8: Memphis - Clarksdale

Day 9: Clarksdale - Natchez

Day 10: Natchez - New Orleans

Day 11 - 14: New Orleans

Day 15: New Orleans - Great Smoky National Park

Day 16 - 17: GSNP

Day 18: GSNP - Asheville

Day 19 - 20: Asheville

And we still have 4 days to play with.

We know we will miss the Kentucky Derby and the NO Jazz Fest but we have to be at work in May.

Where would you add extra days? Is there anything else we must see along the route?

Thanks for your help!
