My husband and I area planning a trip to the US SE for September 28-October 7--with the last couple of days spent with a friend in Baltimore. We're flying in and out of Reagan, and our thought is to spend 5 or so days in between Alexandria, VA and Savannah, Georgia--definitely hitting Charleston, and likely bypassing Washington DC. We are looking for recommendations for our itinerary in between. We love southern food (and are foodies of a sort), and history, and beachy things. Sweetie is excited by pirate history, and I'd like to see a Civil War battlefield somewhere along the way.
Any thoughts, my fellow Trip Advisors?
