    Default Boston to Miami, via...?

    Hi all,

    Last summer my wife and I visited the states for the first time and spent 3 weeks driving route 66. It was the best holiday we'd ever had and now have the bug!

    This year we thought we'd look at the eastern states and so we've already booked a flight to Boston, returning from Miami. We have 3 weeks to get from Boston to Miami but don't know where to begin. We know we'd like to visit New York, Washington, and Philadelphia but don't know much else!

    Whereas route 66 was very much about kitsch and americana we're not sure of the vibe of travelling the eastern states. We're both interested in seeing some historical sites (land runs, civil war) and taking the minor roads. I'm also keen on seeing some of the "dixie" states and the deep south (athough my wife needs some convincing).

    Any tips or "must-sees?

    Be warned! The road trip bug can be a life-long "affliction" -- and I don't think there is ever a cure -- each time you do one, you feel the tug to do another and another.... Welcome to the Great American RoadTrip Forum!

    OK, I have a few threads for you to read and think about...

    A great post on visiting Civil War Sites by AZBuck

    A recent trip planning post about the southern states

    One of the best lodging options I could suggest for your wife... is the Shack-up Inn in Clarksdale, Mississippi. Here is a field report.

    UK Craig has taken several trips to the SE section of the USA. Here is one from the Atlanta area that I think you would find helpful.

    MrsPete wrote some wonderful tips about Savannah here.

    Here is a good list of New England Threads posted by AZBuck


    And the Shenandoah Valley is a must-see!


    This is just a skim of what is available here. Be sure to look at the bottom of every page you look at for more ideas.

    Happy Planning!
