Myself and a friend of mine, both coming from Ireland, are heading to Oz for a year but heading through the States. Expensive trip I know!!
We fly to Boston on June 20th and fly out of Miami on July 20th. However we are hoping to maybe fly out of Miami by July 15th!!
We are spending a couple of nights in Boston and then heading to NYC where we will hook up with a local friend of ours. From here we hope to start our road trip around about July 1st.
The plan looks something like this:
NYC > Wildwood, NJ > Ocean City, DE > Outer Banks, NC > Wilmington, NC > Myrtle Beach, SC > Savannah, GA > Miami, FL.
Is this trip too much for 2 weeks? Bearing in mind we would like to be in Miami maybe by the 12th(give or take) It is possible to leave NYC a couple of days earlier, but would prefer not to.
Another possibility would be to leave out Wildwood and Ocean City, and then head from NYC > DC vis Phillidelphia and then head straight to Wilmington (possibly leaving in the outer banks if time allowed).
Ive never been to the East Coast before so I dont know much about these towns/cities. Which route would be advisable? We are two students who will obviously be looking for a good social scene!
Also, have you any recommendations for car rental? Which company tends to be the cheapest?
Also accomodation tips would be very much appreciated. Bearing in mind we will be sticking to tight budget as we still have long trip ahead of us!
**One final request - Where along this route would be the best place to be to celebrate July 4th!! Im really looking forward to celebrating this day over there!! **
Thanks a million in advance
