    Good choice that, North Carolina for adventure. Check out Asheville and the Smokies to its west, including a great 12-mile dayhike up Mt. Cammerer (more info on hiking and things to do in the Smokies at http://gorp.away.com/gorp/resource/us_national_park/tn/hi_smok.htm). In the same vicinity, you've also got the Nantahala Gorge, with some primo mountain biking and whitewater rafting (more ideas and info at http://vacation.away.com/north-carolina/travel-v2-cid9222-nantahala-national-forest-cid350266-active-and-adventure-vacations.html). Then there's the coast, too, especially the Outer Banks, which offers camping, surfing, kiteboarding, and scuba (more info at http://vacation.away.com/north-carolina/travel-v2-cid362308-outer-banks-cid350266-active-and-adventure-vacations.html). Outside magazine did a good road-trip feature on the Outer Banks, albeit several years ago, at http://away.com/outside/destinations/200307/200307_roadtrip_2.html. Hope this helps. Have a great trip

    I lived in Perugia, Umbria - central Italy, between Florence and Rome, a bit closer to Florence - for 4 months in spring 2007. It was AMAZING. Medium sized, young, vibrant, and global city, beautiful, plenty to see and do, and very centrally located to other places. I would recommend it to anyone, hands down. Spectacular. While there, a few of us rented Vespas and took a road trip to Siena - long trip via Vespa, but absolutely wonderful. Among other things, we ended up in a town called Greve in Tuscany, and went to a beautiful winery called Montefioralle - http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g580240-d1731345-Reviews-Montefioralle_Winery-Greve_in_Chianti_Tuscany.html. The most adorable older man named Fernando Sieni does private wine tastings and cooks homemade meals for people there - hands down, one of the best meals in my life.

    One of the signature events that heralds the arrival of spring and all those wildflowers is the Masters golf tournament in Augusta, GA, which occurs at the beginning of April. The peak blooms, however, typically come toward the end of April, beginning of May, though obviously depends on the amount of rainfall, type of winter that precedes. Other spring blooms to enjoy around the South include dogwoods, rhododendrons, and red buds. Head up to Asheville and the Blue Ridge Parkway for some spectacular mountain colors, too! North Carolina Tourism does a good job of tracking the blooms via links such as following: http://bit.ly/gmsPfR
