First draft road trip Tennessee, Kentucky, ... Advice welcome!

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone,

during our honeymoon, we took a road trip in the Southwest. THE usual road trip : SF, Monterey, Yosemite, ... Brice ... Grand Canyon, Las Vegas ...

For our 10th anniversary (in 2013, yes I'm starting early) we thought of going back to the US, but in another area.

We are more "nature, scenery" oriented than "big city", but not "day long trekking". 2-3h walk will do nicely ... I lived in Kansas for a year, and I love small U.S. cities ...

I always wanted to go to Tennessee, Kentucky, ... I really like the photos I've seen, and we like Country Music, Blues, ...

I've done some research, but it's never easy to estimate the schedules

Here's a first draft of how this trip could start

http://maps.google.be/maps/ms?msid=209640713031112783675.0004ae8d18b6c91b43205&msa=0&ll=35.106428, -88.308105 & spn = 2.224337,5.410767

This is mainly in Tennessee, what I've seen on the Kentucky tourism website does not thrill me I must say ...

So if someone has an opinion on the above route above or better info on Kentucky, I'm interested ...

I do not have a specific timetable in mind, but I think tat 10-12 days would probably be a good estimate ...

An alternative could be to push to Washington DC (one day like to see the CIA, Quantico, Arlington, Whashington ...)by way of the Blue Ridge perhaps?

Thank you in advance,

Xavier
