Georgia & The Carolinas

Georgia & Carlonias - HERO

Self-drive Holidays

This road trip showcases a different side of the American South. It’s a journey of discovery where Appalachian pine forests, beach resorts and graceful colonial cities collide in a whirl of smalltown charm and scenic country settings. Starting in the Georgia state capital of Atlanta, you can explore a slice of big city life before heading north into the western reaches of North Carolina. Making your way from Asheville to Charlotte there’s an opportunity to drive one of the most scenic stretches of the Blue Ridge Mountain Parkway, where nature trails and waterfalls tempt you to pull over and explore. It’s the freedom and flexibility that makes this trip such an exciting prospect. It’s up to you when and where to stop on route to your pre-booked overnight accommodation. Heading to the Atlantic coast you’ll follow the Grand Strand. This succession of seaside resorts, soft sand beaches and nature reserves is some of the most scenic in South Carolina. Completing the tour in Savannah, Georgia, allows ample time to discover the region’s Civil War and Civil Rights history before you return to Atlanta in readiness for your flight home.
