Brian and I are roadtripping for our 20th Anniversary.

Trying to plan a trip in September that takes us from Michigan to Georgia up the east coast and back through Canada. We don't like big cities, we love parks and beautiful views.

Please to be throwing great suggestions for things we really ought to see?

Thanks!

New River Gorge & the Bridge in West Virginia. It's a beautiful area, and there's a cool town nearby called Fayetteville.

I was really hoping you'd chime in! I'm adding those to the route!

Excellent :) (and, you know, we only live an hour away from there .... just sayin' )

Well then! When we get the trip laid out, I'll have a better idea what date we'll be passing through. Let's meet up someplace for dinner? I'd love some face to face time!!

Sounds great! We can definitely meet up (we don't have to have our arms twisted to drive out to the gorge and to eat at the Cathedral Cafe in Fayetteville). Depending which way your route takes you, you could crash at our place if you don't mind a) the dog and b) a futon. Very exciting! It'd be good to spend face time with you :)

I've never been out that way, but it seems like Salem would be an obvious one?

Salem is a MUST!

depending on the route through Canadia, VanKleek Hill/Hawkesbury are beautiful. (they're east of Ottawa, just inside of Ontario from Quebec). if it's not too late in the season, i can get you to the BEST chip wagon in the countryside so you can get a really decent poutine (:

I'd suggest U.S. Route 1 up the coast.
Actually, I'd suggest using the U.S. Highways for most of the U.S. part of the trip, only hopping on the Interstates to bypass the cities (circumferential routes are 3-digit, starting with an even number; the larger the initial digit, the further out from the city the loop is).
I'm in the development stage of a documentary on U.S. Highways, so if there's any info or stupid road facts you want, you're welcome to take advantage of my research.

Rhinebeck NY, all along the Hudson. Magical place.

If you spend much time in Georgia -- watch out for every other street being named Peach Tree. It can get confusing if you don't have a clear idea/know where you're going..

I'm not sure if this is everywhere in GA, but it certainly was that way around Atlanta :)

Have fun!

Blue Ridge Parkway - we try to steal away every weekend - I can send pictures if you like

Savannah / Tybee Island

Myrtle beach is... touristy, but up further north is Carolina Beach (aquarium) and the Outer Banks, NC

If you go to Savannah, Georgia, there's a fantastic seafood place called the Crab Shack that's on Tybee Island. I know you said that you hate big cities, but Savannah's not a super-busy place. Lots of walking goes on there.
