    Default Philly to Jacksonville to Orlando to Philly

    Hello Everyone,

    My wife and I are planning to go to Florida the first week of August. I believe it is a 13 hour drive. (correct me if I am wrong). This is our first road trip and we are tryng to get the most out of it. Any suggestions regarding best route to take, lodging, eating, and sight seeing will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance :)

    Welcome to the RTA forum!

    Well, its not real likely that you will be able to make the trip to Jacksonville in 13 hours, although a computer program may have come up with that number. Realistically, when you figure traffic and even minimal stops, it will take at least 16 hours. Your direct route is I-95, which will be the fastest route, but it is very heavily traveled, as I'm sure you know.

    At 850 miles, it really is more than you should try to do at the start of a trip, because the lingering fatigue will likely really put a damper on the rest of your trip.
