Heading South

We're getting ready to do a trip into the South (Alabama, Georgia, Carolina's) any suggestions of places to see or go to while we're there. DW wants to see a southern Manson. Figure on seeing some of the Civil War sights, but what else is there to see?

How far south in AL? I live 12 mi from the state line HAHA. If you have never been to Panama City, or Desin, FL I would recommend going the extra 60 mi, you will love the beaches.

You might checkout Tannehill Ironworks.

Enjoy your trip.

You must get to Savannah while in Georgia. Absolutely beautiful. Charleston, SC is great also. You should get your fill of southern mansions and Civil War history. Helen, GA is a cool little place. A misplaced Bavarian town.

Charleston, SC has so much to see and tons of great places to eat...beautiful city. I recommend James Island Campground. It's about 10 minutes from the beach and about the same to downtown Charleston. Be sure to take a horse drawn carriage tour (or two). It's a great way to tour the city and learn some interesting history at the same time. There are numerous plantations available to tour as well. If you're going up into the NC mountains, Biltmore Estate is a must see. Hope you have a wonderful and safe trip!

X2 on Savannah and Charleston...just spent two days in each city and had a great time. Really need more time but that's all we had. Charleston has Market Square in downtown with lots of neat shops and eating places, plus several nice southern plantations you can tour and some nice beaches. Savannah has a great riverfront historic district and good restaurants. If you are a golfer, there are many great courses in Myrtle Beach and Hilton Head.

X 3 on Charleston and Savannah...we just got back from there. On your way south, stop at Lookout Mountain in Chattanooga, TN. And the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC is a must-see. Great campground in Asheville is Bear Creek RV Park.
