I have 7 days devoted to driving from North Carolina to South Carolina. I will be flying into Raleigh-Durham, NC and will depart from Charleston, SC. What are the must see cities, attractions and places to stay. What route would be the best?
Depending on your preferences, consider seeing Duke Gardens in Durham, Morehead Planetarium in Chapel Hill, NC Zoo in Asheboro. If your route heads west, then also Old Salem in Winston-Salem, Biltmore House in Asheville, shopping in Biltmore Village, micro-breweries in Asheville, hiking near or driving on Blue Ridge Parkway. You could pan for gems in Sapphire.
