Best Route - Johnson City, TN to Charlotte, NC.

Need to travel to Charlotte, NC (actually Carowinds Camp Wilderness CG) from Bluff City, TN.

Wiggle my way along 19E, to NC194 to NC181 to Morgantown to I-40?
or
just take I-26 all the way to US74 and then I-85 to the Charlotte area?

NOT your first option unless you are a thrill seeker.

Second option is the best except there will be delays in Asheville. Lots of construction on I-26.

ETA: You can go to Marion, VA...take Hwy 16 into Jefferson, NC...pickup Hwy 221 (just opened all 4 lanes) to Hwy 421 to I-77south thru Charlotte.

How about 26 to Asheville, 40 to Hickory, us-321 to Gastonia, then 85-485-77 to Carowinds?

Taking 40 to Hickory will avoid the construction on 26 south out of Asheville and you will have 4-lane (either interstate or US) the whole way. I drove through the construction on 26 in our coach this summer and it was not fun!

Regards.

Chuck

I like this option. Glad to know about the construction south of Ashville.

Thanks.
