    Default Charleston, SC to Ft. Benning / Columbus, GA

    Does anyone have a suggestion for driving from Charleston, SC to Ft. Benning? This is part of a much longer road trip, and we will have been through Savannah already on the way from Orlando to Charleston. Thank you.

    Welcome!

    What are your goals for this leg? My mapping program says the fastest route is US-17 to I-95 to I-16 to GA-96/US-80 to Columbus. It's about 350 miles and should take about 7 hours.

    Default that's a thought

    Apparently there are two (or more) ways that you can go. One is I-20 around Atlanta and down, and the other is I-16. According to Yahoo maps, there is about a 25 minute time difference. I was wondering if one route is more scenic than the other, or if there are road issues on one or the other that I should be aware of. Thanks.

    Atlanta adds 50 to 75 miles and 35 to 45 minutes according to my software. There is also the potential for traffic delays around Atlanta. I don't think there would be much difference in scenery.
