    Knoxville to New York

    have that drive coming up this friday saturday. anyone have some suggestions for a nice route, things to see?

    my timetable is pretty relaxed, could arrive sunday if warranted. I'm picking up a new (used ) car and bringing it home with my 20 year old son

    thanks

    Definitely do Deals Gap/Tail of the Dragon, an 11 mile stretch of road with 318 curves - that will certainly get you acquainted with your car! It is just outside of Knoxville, lots of info if you Google it and there a million videos on YouTube. There is also an amazing BBQ place near there whose name escapes me, but ask any local and they will know it.

    From there you can drive up through Skyline Drive and see some of the most beautiful scenery around, then hook into 81/78 up through Lehigh Valley into PA, NJ, and NY.

    Have fun! I picked up a car in Phoenix last fall and drove it back to Baltimore, it was the best vacation I have had in a long time.

    I missed this thread until just now. Sorry. I live near Knoxville and could have helped you out with some recommendations for the southern part of your trip. I hope it is going well for you and your sun.

    Glad you made it back. You were lucky wihtnyour timing becasue the dragon has just recently been re-opened after being closed for several months due to a rock slide. I was going to suggest you do the Blue Ridge Parkway up into Virginia. Perhaps that can be another trip - spring or fall would be best for photography.

    had planned to do the blue ridge from ashville to roanoke, but we were getting bogged down even before ashville; spent 30 minutes stopped due to traffic

    did have a corn dog at deals gap
