This is my first time on this forum so hopefully I posting this in the correct place.
My family and I are undertaking our annual trip from Sarasota, FL to Washington D.C. We are looking for a good day stop about half-way through that is not too far off I-95.
My mom and I like interesting museums, artsy things and historical stops, my brothers are looking for a good beach. We will also have a small dog with us.
We have done St. Augustine and Savannah and we are hoping to save Charleston for another trip.
One year someone told us to stop off in New Bern, N.C. which is a pretty cute little town, very pretty, no chains, good restaurants, the place seemed trapped in 1950 in a good way. We were hoping to find something equally as charming with good food and reasonably priced lodging for 4 people and are open to suggestions!
