Goin' on a Road Trip—Where?

In July, my friends and I want to take a few days and go on a road trip. It’s something we have wanted to do since graduating high school and since they both have just gotten their masters in education and won’t start working until September, it’s the perfect time to do something fun and frivolous. All we need to know is where we should go!

We want to go somewhere with a beach, lots of culture/art, and some excellent places to eat and interesting nightlife. We also would like to go somewhere in the South. So give me some advice! Here are our choices:

1. Savannah, Georgia

Driving time: 14 hrs.


2. Charleston, South Carolina

Driving time: 13 hrs.


3. Washington D.C.

Driving time: 5 hrs.


4. Nashville, Tennessee

Driving time: 15 hrs.


5. Baltimore, Maryland

Driving time: 4 hrs.


Have any of you been to these places/live in these places? Where should we go?

    I was briefly in Nashville years ago and I was surprised by how hip and modern the city seemed. That city actually has a LOT to do with regards to music, culture, and the arts. Out of the cities that you mentioned, that would be my first choice. Baltimore I have found to be a bit disappointing- and it’s a bit of grey and dreary city. Washington, DC has TONS to do with regards to visiting museums, going on tours, etc. There is a section of DC called Georgetown that has good restaurants, too. Just be careful- outside of Georgetown and the museum areas, parts of the city are quite run down. Of course, there is always Philadelphia (which is near me!)- I love Philly! And the beach and Atlantic City are only about an hour away from it. But, perhaps that is not far enough south for you. Enjoy yourself not matter where you go! 🙂

    • Thank you so much for this great advice! I’ll have to rethink Baltimore now. Georgetown in DC sounds great!

  • Hey, girl! I nominated you for The Sunshine Award! http://psmeganelizabeth.wordpress.com/2014/06/20/the-sunshine-award-nomination-thank-you/ Just click on the link to go to my page and read about it! Congrats (:

  • I sadly have not been to any of those places, but I wanted to say I hope you have an awesome time 🙂

    • Thank you! Have you ever gone on a road trip?

      • Sadly, I haven’t. However, my one friend and I are always talking about taking one to New Orleans, which I think is roughly a 10 hour drive from where we are. I think we might try to make it happen sometime next year 🙂

        • Oh I’ve always wanted to go to New Orleans! It’s much too far to drive from New York though 🙁 hopefully you go soon!

  • I’ve been to all these places except for Savannah (which I hear good things about!). Of the other places, I think Charleston was the prettiest.

  • I would vote for Nashville! I’ve wanted to go there for a couple of years now. But I think you’d enjoy any of these places, with the possible exception of D.C. as it’s very crowded, humid, and muggy in the summer!
