In about six weeks we will begin our trip back to Pennsylvania after wintering in Umatilla, Florida. In the past years we would take about 10 days to get home while making stops in Savannah, Myrtle Beach, Charleston and Hilton Head.

Do you have any suggestions for some place different for a stop?

Thanks in advance for the help.

A trip up the Outer Banks would be fun that time of year. Take the Ferry to Ocrakoke, then to Hatteras and all the way up the Outer Banks to Kitty Hawk. From there you can head up to Virginia Beach, across the Cheasapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, and up the Eastern Shore either all the way to Wilmington, or you can take the Cape May Lewes Ferry over to Jersey and head home from the Shore.

It is a little longer but as you have asked for a different route here is what I suggest:
A.Smokey Mountains area (was there this summer for 2 weeks and loved it)
B.Bristol TN (many waterfalls and music)
C.Join the Blue Ridge PKW at Roanoke followed by Shanandoah till Front Royal...and you are close to Central South PA.
The way back home can be fun....

Since it would have been quite costly for the Andy Griffith show to travel from Hollywood to North Carolina every week they did what all tv shows do. They stayed in CA. The "Mayberry" at Mt. Airy is entirely fictional and created to suck in unknowing tourist dollars.

The show was filmed at Desilu Studios,with exteriors filmed at Forty Acres in Culver City, CA. Woodsy locales were filmed north of Beverly Hills at Franklin Canyon

Mt.Airy is the birthplase of Andy Griffith and was the basis for his show. Also when he referred to Mt Pilot it was really a rock monilith that sticks up from the Carolina countryside called Pilot Mountain and can be seen for miles. And yes there is guy that resembles Barney Fife walking the streets. A couple of old fords painted like andys police car. You can get a haircut at Floyds barber shop and a pork chop sandwich at the Snappy lunch. If you're close, its a great day trip.

Williamsburg, Washington DC, and Gettysburg are three of our favorites. Camp on!
