  1. Default Orlando to Columbus, OH! First Timer, need help!

    Hello everyone! I am new to roadtripping, I guess you could say I never have really done it. Ihave driven long distances, but it was always because of the destination- not the journey!

    So, this July me and my boyfriend are going to be driving to Columbus, the reason being our friends are getting married. We could just fly- but we know there are great stops along the way, so we are taking a week off of work and roadtripping!

    Anyone know of good places along the way, or a good place (besides here!) to map out the best route. I have used Google maps to plan the actual route-but I am trying to pick where we should stop.

    Also- I don't know how we should be planning miles per day, or where to stop to rest- all that!

    ANY help would be greatly appreciated :)

    Thanks everyone!

    P.S- Me and the BF have taken mini trips before, but like I said- it wasn't a "road trip!"

    Default Welcome!

    Welcome to the RoadTrip America Forum!

    500 miles a day is a good average, so that's two days, one way.
    That would put you around Charlotte after the first day.
    Google and the other online mapping options work well enough, though a good paper atlas is always a plus

    What kind of things are you interested in seeing? What are the days that you have for travel, and what day is the wedding on?

    Anything can be considered a road trip - it's all a state of mind.
