Holiday Road Trip: DC --> NC --> NC --> DC

wbc5 | Dec 21, 200409:58 AM

I'll be driving from Arlington, VA down 95 to the Rockingham, NC area (south to SC, then head west) on the 24th, and it looks like we'll stop at Moore's in Kenly.

On the 26th we're headed to the Highlands/Cashiers area, and I'm trying to figure out where to stop on the 5 hour drive through Charlotte, Greenville, and Clemson. Will any of the Upstate Q joints be open on Sunday?

We're in good shape for Highlands, but I'm thinking that we'll make the long trip back to Arlington in one sprint on the 30th.

Two questions:

1. Is I-40 to 29 the way to go, or should I take 40 to 85 to 95?

2. What are some good spots to stop in North Central NC and Southern VA? It's a long way from Arlington, and I may not get back that way for a while, so I don't want to miss any good spots.
