Atlanta to Pinehurst to Harbour Town back to Atla

My Husband would like to do a trip from UK to Atlanta, then drive to Pinehurst, then on to Harbour Town and then back to Atlanta - this to me seems like an awful lot of driving - an advice would be appreciated

That is a lot of driving, basically a day Atl to Pinehust, a day Pinehurst to Hilton Head and then almost a day back to Atl. How long is your trip?

Sounds doable---arrive in ATL, drive up to Pinehurst (Golf?) spend a few days, drive to HH, enjoy the beach and seafood, then come to ATL b4 heading home?

If you have that much time, the driving time is reasonable.

As long as you're passing by, spend a few days in Charleston SC.

I don't know if this would be of any interest but there's an area in NC known for small family-owned potteries. I love driving around slow, country roads stopping in a different shops to see what's for sale and maybe catch the potter at work. You could spend an afternoon (or day) as you leave Pinehurst and head for the coast if that interests you -

And I completely agree with the Charleston suggestion. You may want to add in Savannah on the way back to Atlanta.

If you have interest in the American Civil War, there's a lot to see. Also the world's largest aquarium, the largest mass of exposed granite in the world and the apartment where Gone with the Wind was written. The Atlanta History Center gives a good overview of lots of things, including the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. Ask him about the Fox Theatre also.
