Considering a Trip to TN/AL/GA/SC during Winter Break

Jump to last reply

You all have been so wonderful in the past, so I thought I'd ask another set of questions.

I'm thinking about spending winter break (3 weeks) visiting the southern corner of the country, where I've never been. (On the East Coast, I've never been further south than Maryland, so this would really be a whole new world for me.)

This trip is not certain for a whole host of different reasons, but I wanted to run the itinerary past you guys so that if it does happen, I can have as much time to really plan and research as I can.

My Thoughts:
12/18-- fly BWI-Nashville (BNA); arrive at 9:05 AM. S-T in Nashville
12/21--AM bus Nashville-Memphis; arrive at 10:45 AM. W-Th in Memphis
12/23-- travel Memphis-Birmingham. F-M in Birmingham
**Note: I'm an observant Jew, so F-Sat is not a day of travelling for me, although I'd be spending the time with good friends. Birmingham is effectively S-M
12/26 bus Birmingham-Atlanta; arrive 2:05 PM. Atlanta M-W
12/29 bus Atlanta-Savannah; arriving 3:15 PM. Savannah Th-W
(Same note about not sight-seeing late Friday and Saturday applies here)
1/5 bus Savannah-Charleston; arriving 9 AM. Charleston Th- M
1/9 fly CHS-BWI; arrive at 2:35 PM

Times and methods of transportation are listed only as far as I found cheap ad practical ways of getting from one place to another; total listed travel cost: $466.
----------------------------------------------
So, how's it look? Are the days balanced according to the amount of time it would take? Would you add/subtract anything?
Additionally, How much would you guess that such a trip would cost? $3500? $4000? More than that?

Thanks you all so much in advance, ad I look forward to your suggestions.
