    You don't say where in Virginia you're heading, or from which part of Georgia you're leaving, Crystal, though I'd say you basically have three options if you want to stick on the interstates: the I-95 route that takes you through the Carolinas and up toward Richmond; the route through North Carolina's central belt and then joining I-95 (boring, speaking from personal experience); or the route from Atlanta that will you take up I-75 and then I-81 past Chattanooga, Knoxville, and Bristol. I actually just drove the latter a few days ago and think this would be the most interesting one for a road trip. Possible side trips could include a visit to Great Smoky Mountains National Park and/or the Blue Ridge Parkway by way of Asheville. Another area I'd recommend visiting would the mountainous southern part of Virginia between Bristol and Roanoke. Great hiking at places like Grayson Highlands State Park and Mount Rogers Recreation Area. There's also a fun rail-trail that you can bike, the Virginia Creeper Trail, if the weather's not too cold. Also, this area is famous for its bluegrass and folk music, so perhaps you can join a local jam in a town like Floyd (there's actually one scheduled for March 4 at The Floyd Country Store). Lastly, Shenandoah National Park's Skyline Drive runs parallel to I-81 if you want to get off the interstate further north. There's some nice views up there -- who knows, with this year's warm weather the spring blooms might even be showing!

    I'm not exactly sure where you plan on staying in Georgia, but I'll give you a brief overview of the shopping district in the two biggest towns. In Savannah, the two main shopping districts are River Street and City Market. In Atlanta, you should try Atlantic Station or Amsterdam Walk. You can find a Rue 21 in most shopping malls. Have a great time with your cousin!
