Traveling for the holidays is a necessity that most people dread. Not us! This year would be the first year that we spend both Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years together. Since we went to Maryland for Thanksgiving, that means that Massachusetts is up for Christmas! For those of you that are geographically challenged, the drive from North Carolina to Massachusetts is a long one. We knew we had to do it in two days but weren't quite sure where to stop in between. Maryland was the obvious choice since we know people there and it wouldn't cost us anything; but we have been there before! Rose had some points from Choice Hotels and scored us a free hotel room. Atlantic City here we come!
Ever since our Tennessee trip we have been wanting to drive the rest of the Blue Ridge Parkway. And since we are not quitters on roadtrips, we decided to do the entire thing from beginning to end. Well, we already did the end piece so we wanted to finish the rest and go from its start in Charlottesville, VA all the way to Asheville, NC.
Well, the entire reason for our weekend getaway was to get to Tennessee. On Sunday morning we got up bright and early and headed out to check off a new state from our list! We spent the night just outside of Cherokee, NC the night before and the road to Tennessee was a straight shot down a beautiful mountain road through the falling leaves.
