Southern Solo Roadtrip

Jump to last reply

I'm a single woman in my late twenties. I'm planning a solo road trip through the American South this summer. I've been all throughout the West and Southwest, but this will be my first time going East. The trip will be about 15 days but will move at a quick pace. Here is my plan in order, starting in Texas:

New Orleans
Biloxi
Montgomery and Tuskegee
Savannah, GA
Charleston, SC
Wilmington/New Bern/Greenville, NC
Richmond, VA
Morristown/Jefferson City/Knoxville, TN (family is from here)
Nashville
Memphis
Little Rock

I'm interested in history (especially the Civil War) and art museums, interesting shopping, great zoos, and authentic food. I'm not into tourist traps, expensive/fancy restaurants, or time-sucking activities.
I'm already planning on going to the Freedom Riders Museum in Montgomery, the Andersonville Memorial along the way to Savannah, and the Boone Hall Plantation outside of Charleston.

What do I need to avoid / not miss along the way?
