me and my girlfriend are planning to do a roadtrip this october on the east coast from boston down to key west. it will be our honeymoon, just the two of us. we will rent a convertible car, one way drop. we are planning to overnight stop in new york, richmond, charleston, jacksonville and fort lauderdale. nothing fancy about it, we want breakfast in wagon look-like cafes, sleeping in motels, meals at the sideways restaurants, see small towns and villages; this is how we (europeans) imagine an american road trip.
do you guys recommend to take highways or 2 lane maximum side ways? we are looking for something pitoresque and not industrial. on the other hand should we have any safety concerns?
thank you for replies!
