Hello from N. Ireland. We are regularly take road trips is USA. This year we are considering something slightly different.
1. Arrive in New York 9th July - stay Midtown 6 nights
2. Hire car at JFK and travel to PHil. stay 2 nights
3. From Phil. move to Baltimore - stay 1 night
4. From Baltimore to Washington - stay 2 nights
Now comes the problem. 7 more nights available.
We would like to go either
(a) across to the Blue Ridge mountain range and travel along the scenic roads going north , eventually looping back across towards Amish Country and end up on final day at JFK for evening flight back to Ireland.
(b) further south and towards the coast and then return to N.Y, via coastal route.
Any advice and guidance to make best use of time and best routes woudl be greatly appreciated.
