Got your van rental for your road trip sorted? Here’s where to go!

Richmond – Hanging Rock State Park

Approximate driving time: 4 hours

Bring your hiking boots and start this trip with a dive into the awe inspiring nature that North Carolina boasts. If you enjoy camping in the wilderness, check out the park’s website for overnight instructions.

Hanging Rock State Park – Asheville, NC

Approximate driving time: 3+ hoursIt’s essential that you hop on the Blue Ridge Parkway toward Asheville. It’s stunningly scenic and while mobile service isn’t 100% reliable, this handy app is!

Consider bringing a packed lunch and stopping for a panoramic picnic. The city of Asheville is brimming with excellent food, a fantastic downtown, a tour of the Biltmore and lots of music. Swing by the River Arts District and check out the city’s vibrant beer scene.

Since you can fit everybody in your group in a big van rental from Richmond, it might be a whole lot easier to get back to your hotel after a day checking out the Asheville beer scene if you have one designated driver and the whole group together. Just one of the many small conveniences of renting a 15 passenger van for your group!

Asheville, NC – Knoxville, TN

Approximate driving time: 2 hours

Let Knoxville surprise you. Often ignored for the popularity of its bigger siblings (which we also included on this list), Knoxville has an undeniable charm that shouldn’t be passed over. It offers everything from ziplining to museums. Check out the historic homes and the riverboat tour.

Knoxville, TN – Nashville, TN

Approximate driving time: 3 hours

Country music lovers will absolutely rejoice in the sounds of Nashville. For serious country lovers, we suggest driving straight through to Memphis from Knoxville (5 hours) and hitting Nashville on the way back as your final stop.

Either way, you’re sure to love the lively atmosphere and endless list of things to do. Museums, shows, sports, food…no shortage of entertainment in one of Conde Nast Traveler Magazine’s 10 Friendliest Cities in the US.

Nashville, TN – Memphis, TN

Approximate driving time: 3 hours

It’s the writer’s personal opinion that Memphis is the actual crown jewel of Tennessee. Memphis is just cool. It’s got great architecture, a ton of beautiful blues music on Beale Street, and stories of a deep-rooted American history. You’ve got Graceland, Stax Music, loads of quirky museums and mouth watering barbecue. 

You even have the option to tour the city in a Cinderella carriage. Memphis completely blew my mind, and I hope the same for you!
