My boyfriend and I are travelling to the states in May-July and want to know what the best town is to stop for a night on the way from Memphis to Myrtle Beach? We are driving ourselves and will just be passing through, but hoping to have a bit of a look around for half a day on the way to Myrtle Beach!
But I think it might be better to avoid the big city, so maybe Talladega Superspeedwaywould be an idea. They have a tour of the track and a museum there and it isn't far off the highway. It does make the trip from Memphis 4 hours and from there to Myrtle Beach is 7 hours.
On the other side of Atlanta - 6 hours from Memphis and 5 hours from Myrtle Beach is Athens (Georgia)
