My husband and I are planning an 8-day roadtrip from Jacksonville, Florida to Boston, MA the last week in April. It's kind of a short time to plan, so we need all the help we can get! We'd like to stay around 95, since that's the most direct way, but I read that US-1 might not be a bad option either. Any thoughts on that?
What cities would you recommend visiting with that time frame in mind? We'd like to visit New York City, but I think that we might be better off making that a separate trip for another time. What do you think? The cities we've considered visiting are Richmond, New York, Philadelphia, Asheville (even though it is kind of out of the way), and Charleston. I'm primarily going off of Google Maps and what's along the route. We've done the whole DC trip several times over, so that's not one location along the route that we're considering.
Also, what is the longest amount of time you'd recommend driving without an overnight stay?
