Fly to Atlanta Georgia.

Hire a RV

Drive to Blue Ridge Mountains
Blue Ridge Mountains, Pisgah National Forest, South Toe, NC 28714, USA

OR

Drive to Cherokee, NC
The tribe runs a botanical garden, cultural museum, Indian village

recreation, historical dramas, and an arts and crafts center.

There is also a casino.

Just for Fun.
Visit Ghost Town in the Sky
16 Fie Top Road, Maggie Valley, NC 28751
(828)-926-1130

Then go to Asheville, NC
See the Biltmore House and Gardens
www.biltmore.com...

Drive down to Charleston south Carolina
Plenty of Museums in Charleston

Drive up to Richmond Virginia.

I would recommend seeing Myrtle Beach, SC on your way up the coast

Drive up to Washington DC and depart back to the UK from there.


From Atlanta you can drive to Cherokee then through Maggie Valley
to Asheville then down to Charleston and up the coast to Richmond
and DC.
Less back-tracking that way and you get to see some of the Native

culture as well.

I live in Michigan but have traveled extensively throughout the U.S. It all depends on how much time you have.

LOL, I probably AM! Everytime I visit the city, I'm one of those *shudder* tourists, gawking up at the big pretty buildings!


You know what, I do it too and I have seen them thousands of times.


hahaha.... Of course, I do know enough to avoid New Jersey like the plague!!!


Hey now! New Jersey is actually quite nice if you know where to go. Within 40 minutes of my house I can either be in the country, beaches, major cultural centers, fishing, boating, hiking, biking, etc.

Maybe if you have been drinking Bud. The micro brew revolution has been going on since the 1980's, there is tons of good beer.

Asheville, NC - One of the prettiest/nicest places you could visit. The drive up through the mountains is awesome.

Waaayyyyy before you go into DC ... buy everything you want to eat or drink. They will gouge you for everything you've got.

Also, if anyone asks about your accent and what you're doing in America ... tell 'em you've come to track down Piers Morgan and take him back home.

Yeah, google 'brew pub' and whatever towns/cities you are cruising through and you will get phenomenal local beer.

I third asheville. And honestly, if you went there it's closer, and would probably be enough to give you a nice taste of the mountains and scenic views.

Chimney Rock State Park


I'm sure Jersey is lovely, I've never been further than the airport, lol.

Yes, IPA's are fairly big in the microbrew market on the East Coast right now, not my cup of tea, but a huge variety for you to try.

Agreed, Crown Royal or a good Scotch.
But if you really want an experience try Old Ezra 101 - Straight Bourbon.

I aways wanted pic of me outside the white house in it HAHA!


Do it. Take a pic and then post it here.


Really though, I wouldn't go as far north as DC. I've heard the traffic is terrible up there. Here's the plan Stan: Find your homeboy Elton John's condo and take in the rest of the sights of Atlanta. I hear it's got a lot to offer. Go east and up the eastern seaboard. Some of the oldest settlements in America are there. When you hit Richmond Virginia, turn east to Charleston and do your thing there. This is your Blue Ridge mountain country.

Now find your way west and south to Memphis. The birthplace of rock n roll where they made all those records that you Brits fell in love with all those years ago. Keep going south to New Orleans, that's a whole other experience right there. From there, head back east to Atlanta through what we call the "deep south".

When you're done you'll see just how diverse that one area of the country really is. And that's just one area of the country. You'll have some stories to tell your mates back home and you'll get more of a history lesson of the U.S. than DC ever could have given you. This is the real America. Not the one you see on the news.

That's my suggestion friend. Have fun.

I wouldn't go to Florida, it appears things are getting worse or maybe they were just always worse.

ATS Thread

My cousin (who lives in Canada) brought "something" back from Florida (she stays in St. Pete, Tampa and Fort Meyers on the Gulf side) that sounds a lot like this crap. I honestly don't know if she is going to see this winter.

Cheers - Dave

Yeah, if we're going to tell a foreigner to try and 'American' drink it should be Bourbon.

And if you drink it any way other then neat you will get deported to Gitmo.
