Greenville SC – Atlanta – Savannah – Charlotte – Burlington NC–Short Southeast Loop

We did this little loop in November 2017.

We love Airstream trip planning! Our challenge for this latest trip: plan a loop that would include visiting family in Atlanta (overlapping with the implosion of the Georgia Dome) and visiting family in Burlington, NC (overlapping with Thanksgiving). The implosion was on the Monday of Thanksgiving week, which meant we could enjoy the weekend with our Atlanta people, leave after the implosion, and take a few days to get to Burlington. We needed a fun stopover town to break up the drive south to Atlanta, and somewhere to spend a couple days after Atlanta, not too far from Charlotte, where we’d spend the last night before arriving in Burlington on Thursday.

Here’s what we came up with:

One night in Greenville, SC, at spacious and scenic Ivy Acres RV Park

Other than the plague knocking us each down for a couple days, the route was a great success, getting us to many of our favorite family members and letting us explore new towns, including breweries, of course. I’ll write more about our time in Greenville and Savannah in separate posts.

We dropped the Airstream off for some work at Airstream of NC, and we continue to be impressed with their level of service and highly recommend them!

  1. […] Charlotte’s an easy overnight stop for us when taking the Airstream south or home to VA from the South. The campground is convenient to a cool part of town, and that cool part of town is full of breweries. Read about our first two Airstream trips to Charlotte here and here. […]
