Road Trip - NJ to Miami - Need Non-Touristy Places to Visit

Jump to last reply

In about two weeks, I'll be driving with my family from NJ to Miami. We have 5 days to make the drive, and are looking for ideas on places to visit on the way down. We're not into museums or historical buildings, but like walking around interesting cities and towns and looking at architecture, parks, gardens, and shops. We are fairly outdoorsy, but won't have time for any hiking; however, the outdoorsy type of scene is what we like. Some of our favorite places to visit have been Acadia (Maine), Moab (Utah), and Asheville (NC). I'm looking for recommendations of cute towns that we can stop in on the way down or places to visit/neighborhoods to walk through in some of the major cities (Savannah, Charleston, etc).

Any suggestions?

-Michele
