Planning route to North Georgia

Jump to last reply

We re planning on going to North Georgia (Helen,GA) this summer and im trying to plan a route for us. We live in the Washington DC area. Im thinking I-66 to either I-81 or US 29 through Virginia. Then, im not sure after that. US 29 hits I-40 near Greensboro,NC. Or I could take I-81 to Johnson City, TN to I-26 to Asheville,NC then west on I-40 to US 19 to US 441 south into Georgia. I could also go west from Greensboro and US 29 and then go that same way.

Another main option would be to take US 29 and then take I-85 from Greensboro there through Charlotte, then Greenville and Spartenburg, SC. Then once in Northern Georgia, North from I-85.

We have two days to make the drive headed down there and two days coming back home. So, we would be spending the night both ways. So, I have a few questions. First, im not the biggest fan of the I-81 corridor and think that US 29 through Virginia would be a great alternate scenic drive. But, that dumps me out at Greensboro. From there I can take I-40 or I-85. Is there any scenery along I-85 in South Carolina or would I be better off taking I-40 to just a little past Asheville and heading South on US 441 into Georgia through the mountains? Looking at the map, I-85 seems like it has a lot of cities, whereas I-40 seems to have much less after Winston-Salem.

Thanks-
