Need some ideas!

We will be traveling from central Arkansas to the IRV2 rally in Myrtle Beach. Don't really have a timeline other than the dates of the rally. Thought of leaving mid to late July and touring some. Need some ideas on route and things to do and see on the way. Thanks for your replies!

Thanks for the links, DW already has brochures from a million places. Hoping to get some first hand visit info. about some great but lesser known stops and places to avoid until school is out. Bound to be some other IRV2 rvers headed toward the national rally!

Memphis has some interesting things to see and do. Never stayed there, but the RV park on the river looks interesting with all the boat traffic right beside the CG (I think it is Tom Sawyer but not sure) Chattanooga is nice also and a lot to see there. The aquarium and the river walk area as well as Rock City.
Depending on whether you head south toward Atlanta or east and hang into Tennessee, there is a lot in either direction. You might see a Braves game in Atlanta, or Stone Mtn or Grant Park and the Cyclorama Not many places in Atlanta that I would stay at there and the traffic is pretty daunting unless you are from here. If you swing up through Asheville there is tons of beautiful scenery. All sorts of wineries in the area and the Biltmore House. Cherokee for the tourist trap in you and the casino on the reservation for the gambler. Mine for rubies in Franklin. I could go on, but my point is there is a lot to do most any area you go through

Hey Tim.
The Aurora Fossil is a superb place. They have a phosphate pit on site that yields tons of fossils, and they even provide the tools.


And another pure jewel: Vallentines Store, Cope, SC. A unique view of small town life in cotton country.

Alot depends on whether you will be traveling across 40 or 20. If you are traveling 40 then Graceland is very interesting. DH grumbled about taking the tour and ended up loving it. Nashville, if your interested in the Grand Ole Oprey, etc. The Great Smoky Mountains has so many great places to explore. Cherokee is a must visit for the history of the Trail of Tears. Asheville has the Biltmore Estate, then you could head south towards South Carolina. Charleston is about 2 hours from Myrtle Beach and the history there can keep you busy for a week. Hope this helps. I hope to meet you at the Rally. We will be on site HH-39.

I would also suggest Graceland Memphis maybe stay at Tom Sawyer, Nashville (lots to see and do)
Maybe on to Gatlinburg.
A lot of very nice state parks to stay at along interstate 40.

We also like Tom Sawyer in West Memphis, AR. (See pics) We take our kids.

Beale Street is a must see and Graceland too.
Get the headsets if you visit Graceland or The Biltmore.
This is were we stayed in Ashville.
