2017 Spring SE Coast Trip??

I am in the early stages of planning at trip from South Alabama to the Outer Banks of NC and back through Tennessee before heading back home. I am looking for suggestions on where to stop at the principal stops shown below plus suggestions on how long to stay at each spot. We will be leaving around mid April and we will get back before the Memorial Day weekend madness. We would like to see the sights, but we also want time to just relax at the campground.

1) Savannah, GA
2) Charleston, SC
3) Myrtle Beach, SC or the southern coast of North Carolina
4) Outer Banks, NC
5) Asheville, TN
6) Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg, TN area to see the Smokey Mountain NP
7) Chattanooga, TN

Two good choices in OBX. KOA which has an awesome pool or Waves. It's KOA neighbor but is very personal and small. Totally different atmosphere. We like them both.

Pigeon Forge - traffic is tough. Bear Cove on the first loop is decent, all cement pads and fair in price.

Dollywood is a different kind of amusement park and we liked it.

The CHNS is only about 100 miles of the NC outer-banks which stretch from Sunset Beach in the south to Corolla in the north (over 400 miles). Of interest are the five great lights (not light houses as no houses are involved). The azalea festival in Wilmington and the BB-55 (North Carolina). The ocean water south of Cape Hatteras is warmer 20 degrees (Gulf current) than the water north of Cape Hatteras (Labrador current). Our stops along the coast are usually determined by the local restaurants not by the sights. Our favorite for 34 years is Awful Arthur's Oyster Bar at mile post 6 Beach Road. Second is anyplace in Wanchese.

Stay at Skidaway SP in Savannah. You won't be disappointed. If you meant Asheville NC (not TN), stay at Mama Gertie's. Can't remember the actual town listing, but it's really close.

We like the Mt Pleasant KOA for the Charleston, SC area and River Plantation for the Sevier County TN area. Both are nice and well run parks. If you prefer the quieter side of the Smokies, check out Townsend, TN which is right at the entrance to the park and close to Cades Cove.
