I'm after a bit of advice!
The girlfriend and I need to get from central North Carolina (Durham or Winston-Salem) to Boston in 1.5 days. We'll have driven down the standard route from Boston the day before, and are looking for a bit of a more interesting trek back.
We can leave from NC about lunchtime (Sat), and need to be in Boston by the following (Sun) night. We'd like to spend Sat night somewhere nice and relaxing, so that probably means spending the night somewhere before the halfway point, to arrive at a reasonable time.
What scenic route would you suggest, preferably one that avoids tolls? Google maps is suggesting either US-1 north or US-15 north.
We've both done a lot of long-distance driving (including to the West Coast and back).
