Itinerary for USA Road Trip

Here’s the rough draft of the itinerary for my upcoming road trip leaving next week!  Woo Hoo!  I have now switched gears, yet again, from buying a tear drop camper, to buying a van, to camping, to Couchsurfing!  If you’ve been a follower for a while you’ll recall my wonderful experience Couchsuring in Cape Town for four nights (read about it here)!  I’m putting out a few requests and will have my tent and camping gear with me in my Honda Civic for occasional camping.

Although I’m occasionally a bit indecisive, this trip feels right and not just because of the fortune I opened in my cookie from take-out Chinese the other night…

I’m not finished researching the areas, so I don’t have all of the sights/activities listed I hope to see/do!  I’d love to hear from you if you’ve been to any of these areas and have recommendations!

Drive 6 1/2 hours from Cincinnati to Asheville, N.C. and stay for 3 nights.  Visit The Biltmore Estates and take the Gray Line Trolley (hop on/hop off) to see the sights around town.

Drive 4 1/2 hours to Charleston, S.C. and stay for 3 nights.

Drive 2 1/2 hours to Savannah, Georgia and stay for 2 nights.

Drive 7 1/2 hours to Destin Beach and stay 7 nights exploring the beautiful beaches in the area including Fort Walton, Pensacola, Rosemary and Panama City Beaches.

Drive 7 1/2 hours to St. Petersburg Beach/Tampa Bay area and stay 3 nights.  I’ll probably be staying with a fellow blogger…the beautiful Zully from Spiritual World Traveler, if she’s in town.  So exciting!

Drive a little over 4 hours to Miami/Ft. Lauderdale beaches and stay for 3 nights.

Drive almost 3 hours to Cape Coral (Ft. Myers Beach) and stay for a few weeks.  Family members have a condo there that they generously allow me to use.   I’ll be picking my husband up at the airport the day before Thanksgiving and he’ll stay for a week.

I hope to meet Betty from Heifer 12 x 12 on this trip also!  I’m thinking on the way back will work better for her because she is visiting a different country every month this year and blogging about it!  It’s amazing and she’s amazing!

Hope your day is great!!
