Some of the things I checked out:
- Going to the Atlanta area is a 12 hour drive. It's a straight shot up I-20, and cuts through Shrevepoirt, Jackson and Birmingham. Plenty of places to stop and take a break.
- Hot Springs, AR is less than a 5 hour drive!!! OMG, cheap spa goodness so close??? Anyone up for meeting me for a long weekend? *laugh*
- Austin, as always, is only 3 hours away. I haven't driven down in a while and need to go see absolute_lethe and my friend Meg.
I have four weeks of vacation this year. I usually save a week to extend my winter break to 2-3 weeks, but would like to take a substantial vacation or two, as cheaply as possible, during the summer break.
Does anyone have any other ideas for good locations?
