    Memorial Day 2013 Road Trip

    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!

    If you are going to the Smokies you will have to ride the Cherohala Skyway, then turn around and ride it again
    You should include the souther part (nicest) of the BRP from Asheville to I 77. See Mt Micthell, ride the Diamondback in Little Switzerland (lodging and food). Fog or clouds can spoil this ride.
    In DC take the sunset segway tour of Washington DC around the National Mall. They are worth the cost and you will have a really good time seeing the National Mall at sunset. Segways are alot of fun.
    We're not here for a long time
    We're here for a good time HUEY LEWIS

    Are you committed to using interstates? There are some nice non-interstate routes in SE PA that'll get you from Gettysburg to Philly and south to MD. If time permits, you might enjoy some of these and I and others could certainly point some of these out to you.
