My dad and I are looking to take our first major trip together this coming Memorial Day. I've included the link below that contains the entire route that we plan to take. The trip is going to take place from May 24th to June 1st. We are going to Gettysburg, Philadelphia, Washington D.C., Arlington Cemetery, Monticello, Lexington, VA., Charleston, SC., The BMW Manufacturing Plant in Spartanburg, SC., Dragon's Tail, and back up to Ohio.

Does anyone have any expertise at any of these places? What we are looking for is where to visit, what food/restaurants to try, what to avoid, what resources to use in preparing, as well as what to use while we are on the trip, etc. We are open to any and all advice! Thanks!
