We are two mid-twenties rowdy English guys planning a road trip from Jersey City to Nashville! Basically my friend currently lives in Jersey, so we will spend a few days in New York before going on a 8 day road trip. We've looked at the route and know its a 1800 mile round trip so we understand the travel time implications - but it's about the journey not just the destination eh!
We've marked a few destinations on the way and was hoping we could get some advice on the best places to go and things to do whilst in this great part of the US! We may have a few places now but these probably will dwindle depending on advice.
Our route so far is mainly on the 81 through Philadelphia > Baltimore > Washington > Knoxville > Nashville.
Our route back is looking like Nashville > Louisville > Lexington > Charleston > Jersey City.
If you could offer some advice on things to see and do in these places, and if you think we should go to other places along the route which tourists wouldn't know existed. Also if you have any hostel recommendations along the way, we find these places a great way to meet people!
We want to be immersed in US culture and take this opportunity to really go for it! We like a drink, love sports and enjoy socialising! Open to all sorts of stuff!
Any help would be massively appreciated!!!!
