If you were going on a "southern" road trip, had never been to the south, and were going from Montgomery, AL to Nashville via Georgia, which cities in Georgia would you most want to visit on your way through, and why?

Macon with it's history & Atlanta, an obvious choice. Why not just continue north through Alabama though instead of going out of your way through Georgia? It's about 4 to 4 1/2 hours from Montgomery to Nashville and 2 1/2 just to get to Macon from Montgomery. Unless you're just planning on spending a few extra days in Georgia. If that's the case, I would strongly suggest exploring the Georgia Coast.

Thanks! I am hoping to visit as many states as possible at one time and eventually want to cross them all off the list. I have really thought about going all the way to Savannah, but I just don't really have that one extra day (have a week off work). I was really considering Macon, so it's good to hear a second thought on it. I think what I will do is go from Montgomery to Macon, stay there a night, and then pass through Atlanta on my way to Nashville.

Any other opinions?

If that is your route, Chattanooga and Lookout Mountain would be a good stopover as well. Chattanooga has a nice downtown and Lookout Mountain is lovely.

Also, just outside Nashville is the beautiful town of Franklin, an absolute 'don't-miss' IMO. Beautiful downtown, antebellum homes and loads of history (a major Civil War battle was fought there). Several country music stars reside there, and you may run into Ashley Judd or Nicole Kidman in the local Starbucks.

Agree, that whole area is quite nice with mountains and valleys, as well as the urban area of Chattanooga.

Thanks! I have actually already been to Nashville and Franklin, and since I have friends there, I'll be staying with them when I get into Tennessee. But, I will be going through Chatanhowever you spell it .

If you are interested in Civil War history, you will be passing near the Chickamauga Battlefield in north GA.
