FL, Carolinas, and Georgia in 14-18 days

Jump to last reply

Hi all,
I usually post on the Asia Forum as we usually spend some winter weeks in Asia to get out of the cold New England winters.. This year I am planning a 17 day trip to FL, the Carolinas and Georgia for our March trip and I would like your input, especially concerning the # of days I have scheduled for each place we plan to visit. We are flying into West Palm Beach and flying out of Charleston, SC.

My tentative itinerary is :

3 nights -West Palm beach to visit relatives. We will pick up a rentall car on the 3rd day and begin our trip

2 nights - Miami to visit Everglades NP, and see South Beach

1 night-Bonita Springs resort for beach time

2 nights-Sarasota for Ringling Museum

2 nights-St Augustine for historic sights

1 night Beaufort to visit the low country (is this enough nights to visit Beaufort and the barrier islands)

3 nights Savannah- for historic sights (stopping on the way at Hilton Head just to see what it looks like)

4 nights Charleston- for historic sights

We like history, architecture, culture (Gulah) and good food, especially BBQ. We do not like shopping.

What do you think about the way I have allotted time, considering the time it will take to drive from one place to another?. We like pretty full days. Sightseeing and driving from 10 am to 6 PM would be ideal. We do not enjoy a lot of downtime on our trips.

Any advice, tips or suggestions would be appreciated.
