We are an adventurous 70s West Coast couple looking to make a 10 day road trip from Washington DC to Charlston, SC in late April. One of us is an artist so a westward route thru Ashville, NC is appealing. We like our creature comforts, good food and wine, love beautiful landscapes, quirky places and experiences. We are also wanting to sense the South with a capital S, lore, history, Place. Any specific suggestions as to route, especially fun towns, hotels, restaurants, tent revivals, any eccentric not to miss places would be much appreciated.
