Chicago to Hilton Head
My brother-in-law is traveling from Chicago to Hilton Head, SC later this week, stopping for one night each in Louisville, KY and Pigeon Forge, TN along the way. They'll be in Hilton Head 5 days, with possible side trips to Savannah or Charleston. On the way back, they're stopping in Charlotte, possibly back through Louisville, but the return trip route is up in the air.
He's traveling with his wife (they're both fairly adventurous eaters, but more him than her) and two kids under 10 who aren't particularly adventurous.
The kids being there would restrict their choices more than money, to an extent (and usually more expensive is less kid-friendly anyway.)
Any advice on where to stop, where not to stop? Would you recommend Savannah or Charleston? And what route would you take on the way back?
