We are planning an East Coast road trip in July/August. We fly from the UK to Boston for 2 nights. Then we are flying to Orlando via Jet Blue - never heard of this airline - any advice?. We arrive in Orlando, pick up a hire car (convertable) 21st July and fly out of Washington 4th August. So far I have booked the following:
Orlando - stay 2 nights Int Drive plus a visit to Discovery Cove.
Daytona - stay 1 night.
Jacksonville - stay 1 night.
Not booked but planned:
Savannah GA - 2 nights. Any recommendations for hotels. I like 3star plus including outdoor pools.
Charleston SC - 1 night. Any recommendations for hotels?
Myrtle Beach SC - 2 nights. For a treat, I have picked out the Marriot Grand Dunes Hotels. Anyone any experience of this hotel? It looks as though it is at the quiet end of the beach. Is it too far out?
Morehead City NC - we are planning to drive along the NC Outer Banks. No experience of this, infact I had never heard of the area until I started looking at the map. Could anyone provide any advice? Morehead City looked like a good start. We haven't planned to stay over night on the Outer Banks, is this a mistake?
Virginia Beach VA 1 night - this area seems quite expensive. Is it worth paying for an ocean front hotel if we are only there i night?
Dewey Beach DE - have picked this because it seems quiter than Ocean City. Is this a good choice? Any suggestions for accomodation?
Washington - 3 nights. Any suggestions of what we need to do/see/stay?
Grateful for any advice - have I picked the best places to stay along this route? Have I missed any majo "must-sees"?
We then fly to NYC for a 2 night stay before returning to UK. It is 6 years since last in NYC.
