HELP - need weekend trip ideas in the South East

OK, I could use some ideas. My SO and I will be taking this weekend off to travel a little bit, and get away from here. I need some ideas, to include the following parameters:

- no more than 4-8 hours' ride from Charleston, SC (OBX, Daytona, the Gap are all within that constraint)
- nice accomodations (she doesn't like to rough it), ideally a B & B, for Friday and Saturday night
- amusement park and/or some type of thrill ride (parachuting, rappelling, spelunking, etc.); Six Flags Over Georgia sounds good...
- ideally some scenic riding

One possible itinerary:
- leave CHS for ATL around 5-6PM on Friday, spend the night at a nice hotel/B & B
- spend most of the day at Six Flags
- head out for the Gap, spend the night there
- ride around the Gap area, coming back to CHS in the late evening/night

Another one might include Carowinds, also hitting the Gap some time. Yet another would be at OBX instead of the Gap, etc etc etc

Suggestions? Sights to see? Help???

It may not be the best time to come over this way due to Ivan. I believe it's going to be very wet around here through the weekend.

I know... and that does put a damper on things. Maybe going N/NW would make the most sense, but that's why I'm asking... thanks.

They are taking the warnings seriously around here. It's not even raining where I am (20 miles E of Atl), yet a few metro schools have already announced that they will be closed.

On the spelunking front you can go to the Lost Sea in Sweetwater TN. If you can get 12 people you can sleep in the cave http://www.thelostsea.com/Groups.htm Tallulah Gorge is interesting http://ngeorgia.com/parks/tallulah.html and for waterfalls in middle TN and northern GA you can check my home page for some names.

I know this is late for your trip that you were planning but... If you are serious about spelunking you might want to check these guys out. (For future reference)
