Help with maiden voyage

Our 2002 Safari will be out of the shop on Thursday. We are chomping at the bit to get out on the road for our first trip. I am flummoxed on where to go. Seems like so many choices. We live in central Pa. Need to go south because we are not ready to try cold weather camping. I figure we could do about 600 miles that would include one night on the road. Any suggestions on where we might go to?

DebDon, Nashville as stated above is a perfect place. Three RV Parks on Music Valley Dr near the Grand Old Opry, a stones through from the Opry Mills Mall, numerous restaurants & close enough to downtown for a day tour. We always stay at Jellystone but theirs also a KOA & Two Rivers CG all next to each other + a Camping World in the middle of it all. Jellystone is all pull through & now it's off season so call for the best rate, also all the campgrounds has the downtown shuttle passing through so a trip downtown is painless. You can't go wrong, do it, & have fun.

Last, Caney Fork Restaurant also has the best cat fish in the south & it's on Music Valley Dr just up from the RV Parks, sit at the bar, ware your boots have a couple beers while enjoying the locals & listen to the group playing light country music.

The coast between Charleston, SC and Jacksonville, FL is wonderful. Charleston is beautiful.

Second vote for TN. The Pigeon Forge / Sevierville area (home of Dolly Parton and easy access to the Great Smokey Mountain National Park) has lots to see and do. Western NC has the Biltmore Estate; well worth seeing. A drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway should be spectacular this time of year.

In my humble opinion, you ought to learn early that the true joys of travel is what you find along the way, rather than the destination itself. For your first trip, ignore highways, stick to the old farm roads, stop at small towns, antique stores, fairs, etc.

The second thing I would suggest is to get a copy of your state parks system guide and start with the closest in and work your way outwards. Virginia is blessed that I have yet to find a bad state park for RV camping.

I know of only one campground in Pennsylvania right now -- Rose Point Campground, north of Pittsburgh. It's packed in as sardines, but the staff and clientel are amongst the friendliest people I've ever met - and their activities for children seem second to none -- the weekend I was there in early October, they had early trick-or-treating, hay rides and an evening barn dance.

If you like beach, we're on the Outer Banks this week, and it's great. Good CGs, most everything is open, no crowds.
