Stream of consciousness here:

Ashville, NC. Biltmore Estate (pricey, but a lot to see). The country's largest private estate, built by the Vanderbilts. Fabulous gardens, etc. The rest of the town is tasteful shops. Artist community.

Berea, KY. College town, artisan shops.

Kentucky Horse Park, Lexington, KY. Lovely campgrounds, meticulous stables, tours of facilities, and, of course, nearby Churchill Downs.

Natural Bridge, VA. Not much to see except the Natural Bridge (a stone arch where the river has carved out the hole) but it's good. KOA right off 81 is 0.1 miles from interstate, and has a dozen or so pull thrus making for easy overnight. Stay away from the Yogi Bear campground, where the owner gives off a definite bad vibe.

Stone Mountain, GA. Nice big campground, paved pads, lots of trees. Monument carved by the same guy who did Mount Rushmore, except the locals rode him out of town on a rail because he insisted on putting a hat on General Sherman. (True story.) Hiking, biking, etc.

Savannah GA, which is just over the causeway from Tybee Island ;) There are other islands there too, but we didn't explore any of them. Next time.

More if I think of it.
