Looking for ideas for vacation spots 6 hours from Akron, Oh

We are looking for vacation spots that are about six hours away from Akron. Would like to go south (a little warmer area), and are looking for a quieter, rustic, historic area. Not into the big city type of atmosphere.

Asheville, NC with some side trips around the Piedmont. Maybe an activity in Smokey Mountain National Park on the way or return.

Lexington, Ky is 4 and 1/2 hours. Lots of horse farms and beautiful country.

Front Royal, Va- the beginning of Skyline Dr is 5 hours.

Gatlinburg, Tenn (smokey mountians) is almost 8 hours

Virginia Beach is 8 hours. Lots of naval history there.

There's not much in the way of "warmer" within 6 hours, sorry to say. Are you wanting to travel now to escape from the cold? or is this a spring trip? How long do you have for the trip?
