DRIVING FROM CHARLOTTE NC TO ANNA MARIA ISLAND FL

We will be driving from Charlotte NC to Anna Maria Island FL and are looking for interesting spots along the way to day trips/overnight stay. Ideas?

Savannah, GA or St. Augustine, FL.

Both historic cities.

I have to concur with AAAFF. Those are both great cities along the way. We travel from Orlando to TN/VA often and use Savannah as a nice stopping point either coming or going. We love Savannah and have been there probably a half dozen times and always look forward to going back. St. Augustine has a lot to offer as well and we often take day trips there.

Charleston and Beaufort in South Carolina would also qualify IMO

Thanks all! We have been to Hilton Head/Beaufort/Savannah/Charleston. St Augustine sounds like something new. Appreciate your quick responses.

If you enjoyed Marjorie Kinnan Rawlins' books and/or want to see what Florida looked like as it was settled, stop by here -

A slight detour will take you here if you want to pretend your in a Tarzan movie. Consider a canoe trip -

If you want to visit a pretty town with unique shops, stop at Mount Dora -
