What is the best time to travel in the SE in respect to weather.
No hurricanes season or cold. I figure April - June. What do you think?
i personally like oct. the temp is milder. In Ar, i like mountainview, ar. there is a folk center, a nice cave (Blanchard Springs Cavern). Each night, people gather around the court house sq and play their music.
Tn is also nice in oct. we prefere to go there in July though. we like the 1000 trail natchez trace campground and the area (if u go to that one, read their caution abt getting there from the trace, there is a low clearance going under the trace 11'). Gatlenburg is nice if u go there, u may want to take 40 on around and come in from the east and get a campground on the east side. we stayed around pigeon forge. while there go thru Cades Cove on the west side of the great smokey mountain nat park.
West Virginia we like. we stayed at stevens lake near Beckley. there is a exibition coal mine tour at Beckley. the new river bridge is north of there. on the eastern end of the state is Cass, they have a rail road there with a Shay engine. On the way to Cass, you will see a radio telescope (dish farm) to the right just a few miles from Cass.
In Louisiana, I prefere the Lafayette area. New Orleans is ok but u see more of the Cajun culture in Lafayette (I-10 half way to baton rouge). The differences between N & S Louisiana is quiet a contrast in culture.
Georgia we went thru in mid april. Stawberries were just coming in. peaches were still a week or so away. Savanah is very nice.
Generally, hurricane season is late aug and early sept. i feel like it's over by the first of Oct. Of the dates u are planing, i would choose late april thru may as prime. temp is still mild then.
