Beautiful Scenic Destinations in the Eastern US?

Jump to last reply

Hello Everyone!

Normally I would plan this much farther in advance but I was too busy GRADUATING!! :)

My boyfriend's 24th birthday is Tuesday and he would love to go on an inexpensive road trip. We plan on going somewhere the 23rd - 29th.

I have been to a number of beautiful places East of the Mississippi (Dolly Sods, WV; The Smokey Mts; Poconos; Adirondacks etc,, Outer Banks, all over Florida, Blue Ridge Mts). I would say scenery wise, Dolly Sods is my favorite, and I certainly would visit them all again. Especially if anyone had some expert advice on campgrounds, hiking trails, nearby towns etc.

We will be traveling from Richmond VA, and would like to drive less than 16 hours one way (unless it is reeeeeallly beautiful). Has anyone been to Acadia National Park in Maine?

We would be "car camping", and are fine with out electricity.

I still haven't ruled out visiting neat cities/towns with cheap hotels.

Any suggestions would be appreciated!
