Its all lovely countryside'of course, but I am looking for small southern town USA experience.I am happy to take any route suggestions,campground info etc.etc.

Admittedly I've only ridden the northern 40 miles or so of the Trace and a little bit of the southern end of the Blue Ridge, but I would say the Trace is much more boring. Living in Mid-TN, you definitely don't get a feel for the small towns on the Trace.
