March/April 2018. No budget limit, as we will be staying at private homes. Might extend trip to Charleston SC. Trip starts and ends at home in Fort Wayne, IN.
1. https://www.trippy.com/distance/Fort-Wayne-to-Charleston-SC. You can stop in Lexington KY, Pigeon Forge and Asheville.
2. https://www.trippy.com/drive/Fort-Wayne-to-Charleston-SC for suggested places to eat and things to do.
Lexington is the Horse Capital of the World and one place to visit is the Kentucky Horse Park. The Park has over 50 breeds of horses, a museum and shows/demonstrations.
Pigeon Forge in the Smoky Mountains is home to Dollywood, Great Smoky Mountains National Park and The Island.
Asheville has so much to offer. It's one of my favorite places in North Carolina. Here's a list of 50 Things to Do While in Asheville on ExploreAsheville.com.
