  1. Default Boston to Virginia

    Hi everyone!
    My friends and I are planning a mini east coast roadtrip from Boston to Virginia the week before our undergrad graduation late May.

    We have 5 days and have a loose plan:
    1: Boston-> Baltimore
    2: Baltimore-> DC during the day-> get to VA Beach
    3. Day at VA : VA Beach, possibly Richmond
    4. VA-> drive through Delaware -> end in NJ
    5. NJ-> Atlantic City-> drive back to Boston

    My questions are:
    1. Is it possible to make this trip in the amt of time given?
    2. Is VA Beach the best beach to stay at along this route?
    3. Does anyone have any car rental suggestions?-- we may be taking a bus from Boston to Baltimore since we don't plan on making any stops between these two locations and borrowing a car in Baltimore
    4. Does anyone have any suggestions for places to stop at?

    Default Rental?


    How old will you 2 be at the time of the trip? There will be a daily surcharge for each driver under 25, and those under 21 will not be allowed to rent or drive at all.

    Default Well, let's see........'s somewhat of a long loop from DC to Va Beach, and one would have traffic exiting DC and going through Tidewater to get to VB on the far side of it (where Tidewater is the term for the entire Hampton Roads region). Like Boston, Tidewater's traffic headaches are created by the many bodies of water and the bottlenecks created by bridges and tunnels.

    If you're going to the Jersey Shore anyway, I'm not sure I'd hack my way to VB from DC for just a night and part of the next day. It might be warmer than the Jersey shore, but not likely by much, and the water at each place will be breathtakingly cold in early May.

    If you've got something to do in Richmond, I'd save the long loop down to VB.
