Road Trip - from MI to Smokey Mts, Fort Benning Ga, New Orleans

Jump to last reply

Two adults leaving June 30, 2012 for Smokey Mts, would appreciate any suggestions for places to stay Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge? We are interested in the park and nature, not interested in the shopping or junkie musems. I heard the NC side of the Smokies is quieter and not as crowded, does any one have any experience doing this? How about Cades Cove?

Would like to know if visitors are allowed on Fort Benning GA. , my husband went to Jump School there (40 odd years ago, he was with 101st....Go Airborne! ) and wants to show me where he jumped off the towers. I did try the web site but couldn't tell if visitors are allowed to drive thru.

From there we will be going to New Orleans, ( I know it will be HOT but it is the only time we can get off work) Suggestions for places to stay in the French Quarter, and must sees.

We have 3 weeks, will also go to Texas but visiting relatives, so that is taken care of, but would like to know if any good stops from New Orleans to Corpus Cristie?

Thank you
